Values in Action
Making meaningful and deliberate outreach to our customers and communities helps us focus on the programs and services that benefit them most. A new leadership position, Director of Community Engagement & Outreach, was created in 2021 to work proactively to establish and maintain strong relationships with community-based charitable and non-profit organizations in support of Stock Yards Bank’s CRA and fair lending programs. Stock Yards Bank participates in the Habitat for Humanity Bankers’ Build each year supporting housing stability for our neighbors.
Investing in Our CommunitiesWe also encourage community involvement so that staff can choose the charities and causes that mean the most to them. This gives individuals a sense of accomplishment that’s tied to the work they do for customers.
We activate our teams to donate to the causes that they deem most important. Stock Yards Bank employees made significant contributions in 2021 including $30,400 to Fund for the Arts; $47,320 to help with tornado relief in western Kentucky, which was matched dollar for dollar by the bank; and $57,000 in employee contributions and $44,000 in company matched contributions to the United Way.
