Monona Brank presenting Common Wealth Development in Madison WI

Monona Bank announced today it will donate $21,000 to Common Wealth Development, Inc. who is working to assist our neighbors in need during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. This donation was made possible by a $16,000 grant the bank received from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago (FHLB Chicago) Targeted Impact Fund. Monona Bank then contributed an additional $5,000 to help continue Common Wealth Development’s work.

Monona Bank President & CEO Paul Hoffmann, stated, “Monona Bank is very excited to again partner with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago to provide these much-needed funds to Common Wealth Development.” In June 2020, Monona Bank received a $20,000 FHLB Chicago grant as part of the $82,300 the bank donated to 15 area food pantries, and four other Madison-area non-profits working to assist our neighbors in need during the COVID-19 crisis.

Monona Bank choose to donate these funds to Common Wealth Development for their continued efforts in helping those in our communities who have been directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Common Wealth Development is dedicated to improving our neighborhoods in the Madison Metropolitan area by providing a variety of youth and adult programs to help nourish a healthy community for all. Monona Bank’s contribution will help continue Common Wealth Development’s financial fluency programs for youth and adults to help make sure they have the financial tools to be successful.
