Power of Community Week

What is the Wisconsin Bankers Association Power of Community?

During the week of April 18-23, 2022, the fifth Annual Wisconsin Bankers Association Power of Community Week campaign will bring together our member banks and associate member companies to celebrate your commitment to the communities you serve. During the campaign, we encourage all participants to engage in one or more community service activities.

And your communities need you now, more than ever.

WBA invites all members to participate in this effort to highlight how much Wisconsin’s banking industry supports the communities in our state.

Need some ideas?

There’s no limit on how you choose to engage with your community during the campaign, but if you’re scratching your head, check out past examples.

Order T-Shirts for Your Team

Create team spirit by ordering Power of Community t-shirts for your company! The shirts feature the campaign logo and hashtag (#BanksPowerWI). A company logo may also be added to the back of the t-shirts. T-shirt orders are due March 1, 2022.

Why should my organization get involved?

We know how much time, effort, and resources you dedicate to strengthening your community… but many others do not. This state-wide, week-long campaign is the perfect opportunity to show the world the tangible ways in which Wisconsin’s banking industry empowers the communities it serves, whether it’s volunteering at a local non-profit, fundraising for a charitable organization, using your office to collect items to be shared with a local group (i.e. collecting non-perishable or hygiene goods for a local group), or participating in National Teach Children to Save Day.

During the campaign and continuing after it ends, WBA will highlight your hard work through social and print media to show the collective impact of Wisconsin’s banking industry.

Each registered bank will receive recognition on this webpage and in future promotions and articles relating to the campaign.
