Important Information

Community Awards Program

Community Awards Program Logo

Our Annual Community Awards Program allows each Ion Bank customer to vote for their favorite non-profit organization to help the Ion Bank Foundation decide where to donate funds. Enrolled non-profits will receive a donation of $25 from the Ion Bank Foundation for every vote for their organization. Voting takes place annually from February 1 through March 1.

We are very proud of this giving program and hope you will partner with the Ion Bank Foundation to help us, help local non-profit organizations in our community.

The Ion Bank Foundation

As a community mutual bank, we believe that reinvesting in our communities is one of our most important duties and a fundamental part of our mission. Established in 1998, the Foundation has grown from an initial $2 million contribution by the Bank to more than $12.7 million in assets, through earnings and additional contributions. Since its inception in 1998, cumulative grants for purposes ranging from improving social services to enhancing the arts have exceeded $11.4 million.

The Ion Bank Foundation contributes annually to a wide range of organizations such as health, education, economic development, human and social services, and the arts.  We partner with non-profit organizations by providing direct support to make our communities a better place to live, work and prosper. Our vision is to build a legacy of good works and to preserve funds to continue those good works in perpetuity.
