Community Involvement

As a local community bank, we are committed to supporting the communities we serve throughout Ogle, Winnebago, and Boone Counties. That is why you’ll see us getting involved and actively supporting a variety of area organizations, agencies, activities and events. We strive both as a bank and as individuals to do our part to help make our communities better places to live and work—and that benefits all of us!

At our core, we are a local bank sharing the narrative we have been promoting for 140 years: the importance of bringing the “community” to community banking.
