Community

We make a point of supporting the communities we serve, because without the community, there is no Peoples Exchange Bank. For us, doing the right thing isn't just about banking smarter, it means supporting our neighbors when they need some extra help.

Whether it's education, economic development, civic activities, health and human services, or culture and the arts, supporting non profit organizations where our employees and customers live is part of good corporate citizenship. Each year we give financial support to those in need to support community development programs.

Through the Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati (FHLB Bank) we are proud to offer grants under the Welcome Home Program to help members of our community with low or moderate incomes purchase a new home.

Our employees offer their hands and hearts to mentor young people, support community celebrations, serve on boards of local nonprofits, and help raise awareness for important causes.

Peoples Exchange Bank representatives visit schools throughout the year teaching students about the importance of savings and making smart financial choices.

Participating in volunteer initiatives enables our employees to give time to make the most impact in the communities we serve. Our employee volunteers dedicate hundreds of hours every year to making our communities stronger.

Sharing meals, giving books, planting trees - some of the ways we strengthen communities. Peoples Exchange Bank strives to play a part in bettering the community for years to come.
