Our Commitment to the Community
Merchants Bank & Trust is committed to the people and businesses of the communities we serve. Throughout the years, our employees have volunteered their time and talent to a variety of worthwhile causes and service organizations. And, we’ve given generously to many organizations that help make our community a better place to live and work.
As a corporate neighbor, we feel it’s our responsibility to help keep the communities we serve both vital and strong. We believe this is achieved through community involvement and education. As part of this mission, we’ve made a commitment to support the efforts of local Relay for Life organizations, recreation commissions, Lions Clubs, and scouts.
We’ve also formed a business partnership with local high schools. As part of this partnership, our employees teach a hands-on banking class to high school seniors. The class provides the opportunity for students to open and manage their own checking account, even though they are under the age of 18. The goal of the course is to teach financial responsibility.
We take our social responsibility very seriously. As the bank grows and expands, we’ll continue to support efforts that help communities and individuals to succeed.
