Cornhusker Bank – Community Strong
Cornhusker Bank (CornhuskerBank.com) loves Lincoln and believes helping support community organizations is vital to the overall health and vitality of the local economy. Because of this Cornhusker Bank and its associates invest in a variety of ways to give back to our community. Cornhusker Bank also provides ways customers and the community at large can be involved in activities.
“Donations and sponsorships are a major component of the bank’s giving. Each year the bank makes donations to hundreds of causes we believe play an important role in keeping our community healthy,” noted Barry Lockard, President/CEO.
The Bank also hosts a “Shred Day” once a year as part of our efforts to save our local environment. This is an event open to the public to stop by the bank with their documents and have shredding done free of charge. The bank also strives to recycle as many of our daily waste products as we can to help the community “stay green.” This includes cardboard, plastic, and aluminum coming from all of our locations throughout town.
Cornhusker Bank also participates in community development programs like the Community Reinvestment Act. This act is a critical portion of helping our community grow for all levels of income, and in all areas of the city by assuring no segment of our economy is passed over by our lending division. The bank also provides Energy loans through the Nebraska Energy Office that help provide low interest loans to help save energy.
The bank believes financial education is a key to self-sufficiency and growth. Cornhusker Bank’s efforts to assure financial education include the funding of several college scholarships in our community, as well as providing free seminars throughout the year on topics such as the Six Steps to Financial Success seminar the bank’s Wealth Management and Financial Services division presents.
Cornhusker Bank encourages and supports associate community involvement through volunteerism. Volunteer activities are chosen through both company-sponsored events and individual interests. Cornhusker Bank’s One Day Without Shoes event for the benefit of the People’s City Mission finds many bank associates volunteering with shoe sorting efforts for the thousands of shoes we collect annually.
Some of the bank associates and their families volunteered at the
Peoples City Mission to help sort nearly 29,000 pair of shoes collected
from community donations at the annual One Day
Without Shoes event in 2017.
By investing in people and their desires and dreams for the future, along with providing products and services meeting the diverse needs in our community, we help provide both the economic and social vibrancy that help our community grow and stay healthy.
Cornhusker Bank’s management and owners recognize the importance of stability and long-term commitment to the community. With events like our annual One Day Without Shoes drive, in which we partner with other organizations throughout the community, we have been able to deliver thousands of pairs of shoes to the People’s City Mission. Through the many different boards and organizations our associates sit upon and volunteer their time for, we display our focus on giving back to the community with our talent, time and financial resources. Simply put, it is all about Commitment to Success!
Cornhusker Bank remains Lincoln’s oldest locally-owned bank, demonstrating stability, soundness and investing in the future growth of the community, valued customers and associates.
