Just for Me Family Center based in Sun Prairie was awarded a $25,000 Community First Accelerate Grant for Small Business by the Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLBank) of Chicago offered to Bank of Sun Prairie small business customers.

Wayland shared, “Bank of Sun Prairie is a real partner who stands by your side. This grant award would not have happened without them. We are eternally grateful to Bank of Sun Prairie and FHLBank for these critically needed dollars. Our kids will benefit in the end.”
“It is wonderful Just for Me Family Center received this grant award from FHLBank of Chicago,” shared Chris Cox, Bank of Sun Prairie’s senior vice president – chief business banking officer. “Bank of Sun Prairie values our membership in the FHLBank of Chicago. Their focus on strengthening small businesses and lifting up our local communities directly aligns with our tireless work to do the same right here in our backyard.”
