Our Marquette Neighborhood Commitment is an employee-driven initiative that performs monthly service projects in the areas of shelter, hunger, education and health/wellness. We not only work in the communities we serve, we live there too.

Through these efforts, we hope to create an even closer relationship with our neighbors and continue to strengthen the neighborhoods we care about so much.

ABA Foundation Community Commitment Award   

Our Marquette Neighborhood Commitment was recognized nationally with an ABA Foundation Community Commitment Award in Volunteerism and at the state level with an Excellence & Innovation BKD Award from the Community Bankers Association of Illinois

   2021 Excellence & Innovation BKD Award

Both recognitions were awarded for our Community Pandemic Response and would not have been possible without the support of our employees and customers – like you!

Neighborhood banking is about making a difference in our communities and in the lives of our customers.
