During the year, major donations were given to Dane County organizations including Attic Angel Association, American Cancer Society Coaches vs. Cancer, Madison Winter Festival, Madison Opera and the Second Harvest Foodbank.
“Giving back to the community is a core value of Starion Bank,” explained Craig Larson, CEO and chairman of the board for Starion. “These organizations help make the community strong and vibrant. Starion is proud to support so many groups that share our mission to build a better community.”
The bank also supports its employees’ work to make a difference in the community. “As a supercommunity bank, we believe it’s important to support our employees and their volunteer efforts. It’s an honor to work with individuals who care so much about making the community a better place to live and work,” added Larson.
