We Believe in Giving Back
At Investors Community Bank, giving back to the communities where we live and work is at the heart of what we do.
You have put your trust in us, and we're honored to be able to give back to those we serve — whether by putting the deposits we receive back to work for farms and businesses in those same communities or by the contributions we make locally.
We’re also proud to support the organizations, nonprofits and people who are working hard to improve our cities and towns. In addition to financial support, many of our employees are committed to serving on local boards and volunteering with area organizations, donating time and energy to the things that mean the most to them.
How do we give back?
Community Impact Program
Each year, ICB provides every employee with $200 to give to a charitable cause of their choice. Our intent is to empower our employees to make a positive impact in their own way and support a wide variety of area organizations we otherwise may not have been aware of.
Here's just a couple of the impact we have on our communities:
"Donating to the CAP Services Youth Program was such an easy choice. The program serves youth in the area whose home life is not always ideal. It gives them a safe place to go for activities, mentoring and counseling services. The program coordinator, Andy, was previously a police officer in the area, so he understands the importance of changing the views on what life could be like for the young people in our area who are at risk.”
— Carrie M., Personal Banker
“As a board member of the Wisconsin Agricultural Education Center (WAEC), I am proud to have donated my community impact dollars to this worthwhile project. The WAEC board is comprised of passionate industry leaders that wanted to bring a state-of-the-art agricultural center to the heart of the dairy state. Our ‘Create, Cultivate, Educate’ campaign will help educate the general public on where their food actually comes from and how it is produced.”
— Roger S., Ag Banking Officer
Our employees love to volunteer! In 2018, more than 1,500 hours of volunteer time were given to area organizations — from sports teams to schools to chambers of Commerce in the markets we serve. In fact, the bank is so passionate about encouraging volunteering, we give each employee four paid hours of volunteer time each year.
We also support area organizations in each of our markets through tangible donations, such as:
- School supply donations
- Thanksgiving food drive
- Christmas adopt-a-family program
- Donation of unused furniture to area nonprofits
- Power of Community Week Project
- #10GallonChallenge milk donations to help area farmers and food pantries
Finally, we are proud to sponsor community organizations and events in each of the areas we serve. From golf outings to Breakfast on the Farm to local chambers of commerce, here are just a few of the many organizations and events we support:
- Ashwaubenon Business Association
- Big Brothers Big Sisters
- Boys & Girls Club of Portage County
- CASA of the Fox Cities
- Farm Wisconsin Discovery Center
