Community Involvement

We’re committed to our communities and support a wide variety of community organizations, events and projects around Dane County. Supporting numerous community projects and functions across Dane County through donations and employee volunteer projects is how we do business. Because we're locally owned and operated, the money you save with us stays in our communities to finance local businesses and homes. You can feel good investing in a local bank that is as committed to community as you are.


Contribution Policy

Monona Bank supports numerous community groups and events. Because of the volume of requests for support we receive, we have developed a corporate policy to help us focus our support effectively.

We believe our community support will have the greatest impact when our efforts are focused, especially given the limited budget we have to help. Currently, we are focusing our support towards local organizations whose work positively impacts the following areas of need in our communities:

  • Senior Services
  • Housing and Community Safety
  • Primary and Secondary Education (Athletics, DECA and other Child/Teen Groups)

Some of the organizations we’ve recently been involved with include: Common Wealth Development’s Youth Education Program, Madison’s Olbrich Gardens, Middleton’s Good Neighbor Festival and MOM program, AtwoodFest, Monona Festival, area Chamber of Commerces, Monona Grove and Middleton High Schools, Madison Magnet Group, the First Tee Golf Group, Women’s Business Initiative, Madison Canopy Center, the Jazz Consortium, Monona and Pinney Libraries, Abundant Life Volunteer program, Immaculate Heart of Mary School and many more.

Just like we make every effort to help our communities become successful, we do the same for our clients. That’s why when faced with choices of multiple worthwhile community groups that need assistance; many times the deciding factor is whether the group banks with us.


Community Outreach

In addition to donations of financial support, our associates get involved with volunteering for a wide variety of projects that benefit numerous community organizations. For example, a group of associates volunteer at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Southern Wisconsin; others serve on financial and loan boards and committees to help local startups and other businesses get started on the right financial footing. 

Our community minded staff enjoys volunteering in a variety of ways: reading to children at the library, organizing holiday employee giving programs, speaking to students about financial products and planning and serving lunch to local seniors every month. Over 90% of our staff gives to the United Way and/or Community Shares programs.
