Every year, bankers, WBA Associate Members, and WBA staff look forward to getting out into their communities for a week that shows our collective impact in a meaningful way. While we know that the banking industry is committed to serving Wisconsin communities throughout the year, the Power of Community Week is a major highlight that demonstrates to the public our ongoing commitment to those local communities.
The 2022 WBA Power of Community Week will take place April 18–23, 2022 and will be followed by National Teach Children to Save Day on April 28, 2022. Activities in late April and early May still count toward a bank’s participation in the WBA Power of Community Week. Examples of participation in the WBA Power of Community Week include volunteering at nursing homes, hosting shredding events at the bank, running a food drive, or giving financial literacy presentations in K–12 classrooms (including virtual presentations). We invite all members to participate in this effort to show how much Wisconsin’s banking industry supports the communities in our state.
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.
Visit www.wisbank.com/BanksPowerWI to
- order t-shirts,
- designate a Power of Community Week contact for your organization, and
- let WBA know about your planned activities, so they can be added to the interactive map of activities statewide.
We look forward to an impactful week of serving the communities we are proud to call home!
