Central Savings Bank, an institution with deep roots in the community, has served the eastern upper peninsula since 1902. Spanning from the International Bridge to the Mackinac Bridge with nine branches, Central Savings Bank is not only a symbol of financial stability but also a testament to the bank's unwavering commitment to its community.
Central Savings Bank differentiates itself from other banks with its blend of traditional customer service and modern banking trends. From mobile wallets to remote deposit capture and advanced online platforms, the bank ensures its customers – of all ages – can access and utilize their funds seamlessly.
Andrea Masters, the marketing manager for Central Savings Bank, highlights the bank's unique offerings, commitment to community service, and its new charitable initiative: their "What Matters to Our Community Matters to Us" campaign.
"We're more than just a financial institution," Masters said. "We're a pillar in our community, supporting local causes through monetary donations, volunteer hours, and so much more."
Launched in October 2022, the "What Matters to Our Community Matters to Us" initiative invites individuals to nominate local organizations in need of financial support. The bank then partners with these organizations to raise funds, even matching donations up to $5,000.
"Since we started last October, we have collected and donated just shy of $40,000 to 10 different organizations selected by our community," Masters shares.
Central Savings Bank's commitment to giving back is evident from helping the Hope Chest and assisting in housing, gas, and food pantries to supporting the eastern upper peninsula intermediate school district's early learning scholarship.
For those wishing to nominate an organization for the "What Matters to Our Community Matters to Us" campaign, Masters encourages them to reach out directly. Nominations can be made in person, on social media or over the phone by calling 906-253-1219.
"We're more than just a business. We're family. Our slogan says, 'Ask what the Central Savings Bank family can do for you.' It's not just about lending money or providing deposit access. It's about asking, genuinely, how can we help?"
