IB Gives Back

At Independence Bank, we give back to the communities that have given so much to us over the years. We are committed to building stronger communities for the future through involvement, donations, sponsorship, and volunteerism. As a bank, we encourage and support our employees to stay active in support of local charitable organizations and clubs. Together, we are investing in our friends and neighbors, and building a community for the next generation.



More than 50% of our employees are actively serving on boards, clubs, and other community organizations to support youth, seniors, education, health, and other needs. We expect and encourage our staff to give back to their communities and support causes closest to their hearts.
