In the Community

St. Mary’s Bank was founded in the spirit of “people helping people,” and we have carried that mission forward since 1908.

At St. Mary's Bank, we donate generously to support nonprofit organizations and community initiatives, and our employees are also committed to the communities they live and work in, collectively volunteering thousands of hours each year to support various nonprofits and social service agencies.

Community Support

St. Mary’s Bank is proud to be a generous supporter of many nonprofit organizations, events, and activities. We dedicate resources to help individuals and families, especially those of modest means, in the communities we serve.

In 2023, St. Mary’s provided over $200,000 in donations to 190 nonprofit organizations.
