Since our inception in 1998, we’ve been focused on serving the unique communities we’re a part of by offering exceptional banking solutions for our local businesses and our neighbors and friends. Another focus of ours has been, and always will be, doing our part to improve our communities. We know it’s our responsibility to invest in our local economy; support our local businesses, organizations, and nonprofits; and encourage equity and inclusion within our communities. That’s what keeps Wisconsin strong.
We’re committed to giving back and doing our part, and one way we do that is through building strong partnerships with people and organizations across our home state who are working towards that same mission. In 2018, we announced our partnership with Marquette University. A big piece of that relationship is our leadership support of the Ignatian Promise Scholarship Initiative. This program provides scholarships to low-income, minority, or first generation students.
We also established a $1 million revolving loan fund for small businesses in the area surrounding Marquette University. Under the supervision of our commercial bankers, students learn how to underwrite, administer, and manage loans made to businesses. Through the university relationship, we hire Marquette University students as interns at the student union bank location and other downtown Milwaukee branches.
This is just one example of how we leverage our partnerships to make a real impact for our community. As Wisconsin’s Bank for Business®, we’re proud to support the leaders and companies that continue to propel this region forward through urban growth and support for diverse communities.
