Community Giving at Waukesha State Bank

As a leader in Community Banking since 1944, Waukesha State Bank’s officers and employees alike proudly serve and volunteer for a wide variety of community, non-profit and civic groups throughout Waukesha County. The Bank also is proud of its partnership with these groups and of our investment in the communities where we do business.

Each year, we provide numerous non-profits, schools, churches, civic groups and other community-based organizations with support in a variety of ways—from sponsorships and silent auction donations, to free ticket printing, community notes ads in the local newspaper, employee volunteers and more. In the last five years alone, we have given over $1.5 million to nearly 400 different Waukesha County non-profit and charitable organizations, in addition to having over $850,000 of funds set up through the Waukesha County Community Foundation and Oconomowoc Area Foundation. It is with great pride that Waukesha State Bank and our employees serve our community-based groups through our daily work, volunteer time and financial resources.

Included on this page are just a few of the resources available that make Waukesha County a great place to live, work and play.
