Do Good In Your Neighborhood! Tune in to WGN Radio 720 to learn more about Giving Tuesday and the Marquette Neighborhood Commitment!

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.
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!
