Continuing a Long History of Giving Back

For the third consecutive year, Port Washington State Bank was named among the Milwaukee Business Journal’s list of Largest Corporate Charitable Contributors in Wisconsin, receiving recognition for its century-plus-long history of philanthropy and volunteerism. The list was recently published on October 7, 2022.

The bank ranks 22 out of 36 with giving totals of $573,000 in combined cash and in-kind donations for the 2021 calendar year, and 1,140 hours of community service. 

“Our community bank is pleased to be listed among these generous organizations.  It’s especially admirable that 9 of the 36 organizations listed are financial institutions. It demonstrates the banking industry’s long and rich history of giving back to the community,” commented James Schowalter, President and Chief Operating Officer.

The service hours contributed to the community are mostly attributed to the bank’s retail staff members who serve on boards and committees and who help at various community events throughout Ozaukee County.  

“The gifts we make of our time, talent and financial resources are embedded in a belief that our communities will thrive and grow and prosper if we work together and reinvest in the future,” added Schowalter. “We always encourage our employees to share in this mentality and we've created a volunteer policy that makes it easy to be giving of their time.”
