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!
If you’d like to request a sponsorship or donation for your organization, please read our guidelines.
We asked our employees to share a time when they felt empowered to give back, to do the right thing, or to make a difference in the lives of those around them.
"Since this program started in September 2016, over 150 women have earned their bikes and now have reliable transportation to live much more positive lives outside the treatment center. From the feedback we have received from both the women in the program and the treatment center management, I truly believe that I am making a difference in these women’s lives and empowering them to be stronger and more self-sufficient."

The McPherson Emprise Bank branch was one of the locations where citizens could visit to select their “Angel” from the Angel Tree to grant wishes for gifts and clothing. Food Basket Tags were also adopted out to help meet the need for food items. There was an overwhelming response as the McPherson community pulled together for those needing a little extra help. Thank you for making this a great Christmas!
Our Chanute and Eureka branches each host Adopt A Child programs in their communities to bring Christmas cheer to children in need. Applications are typically accepted in November and can be completed in the participating Emprise Bank branches.
Volunteers are then offered the role of "Santa" to adopt a child's wish list. Requests range from toys to blankets to socks. Cash donations are also accepted if it’s preferred that the Adopt a Child Program committees handle the shopping on your behalf.
Through the Adopt A Child efforts in Chanute and Eureka, children in Neosho & Greenwood County are given a very merry Christmas that they might not have had otherwise.
Chanute’s Cherry Street Youth Center was presented a check by the local branch with funds raised by Chanute Emprise Bank employee donations in a recent United Way campaign.
Our Lawrence branch went casual to "give schools a boost up by dressing down" as part of the Lawrence Schools Foundation Casual For Kids Day.
Each year, companies step forward and offer United Way one of their own employees or sponsor an employee to help with the campaign. Loaned Executives help companies strategize and develop their campaigns, present at employee campaign meetings and help companies wrap up and report their results. Companies and employees were recognized for their participation at the United Way Kickoff Breakfast held in September.
The Chanute Emprise Bank branch sponsored Royster Middle School's Principal Pay program in 2017. In this program, students at RMS can earn points based upon their grades and behaviors, and then they are able to go on a trip. With this sponsorship, kids are given the opportunity to go somewhere they might not get to otherwise. Last year the 7th graders went to Incredible Pizza in Tulsa. We look forward to learning about this year’s trip & travelers.
