Community Banking Month 2024

by Jen Novotny | Mar 27, 2024


In honor of Community Banking Month, Forte Bank is committed to celebrating YOU! We also want you to know how community banks build strong communities! Collectively, community banks take in local deposits and redistribute them back into the community—consistently making more than 60% of small-business loans and more than 80% of agriculture loans.

Did you know community banks:

  • Are committed lenders with loan growth that has outpaced non-community banks for a decade.
  • Offer high-tech, high-touch service, giving you access to modern-day conveniences and technical capabilities while maintaining the personal service you would expect from a local business.
  • Have a strong track record of helping underserved Americans by providing greater flexibility to low-income and minority borrowers.
  • Give back to their communities!

Take a look at our full schedule of events and activities in honor of YOU during April.
