Strengthening our Communities

Our communities are at the heart of everything we do. Like our customers, we live and work in the towns we serve. We have a vested interest in seeing our communities thrive! 

At Emprise, we want to make a difference in people’s lives and give generously in the spirit of accomplishing great things that make our communities stronger. Not only does the bank support a wide variety of qualified organizations, but our employees are dedicated to getting involved as well. 

Our community volunteer program, Emprise Empowers, celebrates the contributions each one of us can make to give back. Emprise encourages community involvement and facilitates and supports volunteer opportunities with organizations that provide important services to our cities and are meaningful to our employees. 

Look for our Emprise Empowers volunteers at community events around the state!
