A True Community Partner

We realize the importance of being a partner in our local community through our offering of valuable products and services. Deposits made at Porter Bank fund loans to businesses and residents in our local towns. Further, we proudly support many community service organizations and assist them in many ways including corporate donations, active participation by our employees, and through our Casual for a Cause contributions.






Every Quarter, Porter Bank Employees get to choose a cause near and dear to them & go Casual for a Cause.

2024 First Quarter Casual for a Cause recipient was The Caring Place.

The Caring Place is a non-profit social service organization, serving the needs of domestic violence and sexual assault victims. In addition to safe shelter, The Caring Place provides community education, support groups, legal counseling, case management, and an independent living plan.  Pictured from left to right is New Accts.
