Giving Back

At Independent Bank, giving back to our communities is as important to us as giving loans or holding deposits. 

Giving back to people and communities

For 150 years, it’s been our mission to serve our communities in ways that go beyond the walls of our banks. In neighborhoods across Michigan, we take part in financial literacy efforts, raise money for to fight cancer, and give back in many ways to strengthen our communities. Our employees are involved in area schools, arts and cultural organizations, community boards, and places of worship. We’re your friends and neighbors, locally invest the same way you are.

150 Ways in 150 Days

This is a very special year for Independent Bank; we’re celebrating 150 years of serving our Michigan communities. To mark this milestone anniversary, we’ve initiated a program called “150 Ways in 150 Days.” All of us will be dedicating our time to one or more of our 150 different community giving projects, which will take place on 150 different days. Whether it’s collecting clothes for the needy or helping build a Habitat for Humanity home, each of us will be positively impacting our communities.
