Community banks matter because:

 The money you put into a community bank stays in your community.
 You get extra personalized, human, support along with the tech you expect.
 Community banks recognize the people behind the community.
 When things get tough, community banks don't leave their community behind - they step up.
 Community banks support small businesses and are well-established small businesses too.
 Over 75% of U.S. adults agree that locally based lending decisions are important when determining where to bank.*
 69% of U.S. adults recognize the importance of banking with a locally-based financial institution.*
 70% of U.S. adults cite the importance of personal banking relationships in choosing where to bank.*
