Impactful Giving

We are so sincerely committed to the neighborhoods we
serve that we incorporated The Providence Bank & Trust Stewardship Program into our corporate principles when the Bank was founded. Our Stewardship Program dedicates 10% of the Bank’s profits to empowering the important work of local civic, non-profit and Christian organizations.

Over $12.3 million has been donated over 19 years through The Providence Bank & Trust Stewardship Program.

Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.

– 1 Peter 4:10

While some requests are acted upon immediately, each year our Board of Directors takes great care and reflection to consider all requests received throughout the year so we are able to reward and support as many deserving organizations as we possibly can.

Funds are distributed in several ways including:

  • Outright gifts to constituent organizations
  • Fundraiser sponsorships
  • Volunteerism and leadership for special projects

Community Stewardship Loan

In support of our mission to initiate and create opportunities for neighborhood revitalization, Providence Bank & Trust has developed the Community Stewardship Loan. This low interest loan opportunity supports the small businesses and nonprofit organizations in low to moderate income communities of the Chicagoland area and Northwest Indiana.

With the Community Stewardship Loan, we aim to provide a financial solution that delivers needed capital, inspires continued success and ultimately strengthens our communities.

Active Stewards

Stewardship is so much more than financial giving. It is
about investing our heart, time and resources into our
local businesses and families so they can take advantage
of opportunities and realize their potential.

As active stewards, we’re thankful for the opportunity to
volunteer and partner with many great organizations
through the year to support the important work they do
and impact they have in the communities we serve.

I strongly believe when community partners work together for the common good; we develop a stronger sense of belonging and pride in our community. Providence Bank has given me an opportunity to impact lives in our banking community through our volunteer efforts.

Working for a community bank that donates 10% of its profits back to the community is incredibly fulfilling. It’s not just about the financial transactions, but about making a real, tangible difference in the lives of our neighbors. Every loan approved, every account opened, contributes to this cycle of giving. It’s rewarding to see the bank’s success directly fuel local projects, support underprivileged families, and foster growth within our community. This commitment to social responsibility makes me proud to be part of an institution that values people over profits. It’s more than a job; it’s a mission to serve and uplift our community, that’s #stewardstrong!

I believe that giving back to the community in which you live and work ultimately strengthens relationships and fosters prosperity. Being #stewardstrong means that you are always looking outside of your own situation to find a way to help others succeed. When we all work together, we all find fulfillment and success!
