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 to help 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 invested the same way you are.

150 Ways in 150 Days
2014 was a very special year for Independent Bank because we celebrated 150 years of serving our Michigan communities. To mark this milestone anniversary, we initiated a program called “150 Ways in 150 Days.” All of us dedicated our time to one or more of our 150 different community giving projects, which took place on 150 different days. Whether it’s collecting clothes for the needy or helping build a Habitat for Humanity home, each of us positively impacted our communities.
