Giving Back to Our Community

LincolnWay Community Bank engineers two $10,000 COVID-19 grants for Silver Cross Foundation and MorningStar Mission. “Both of these worthy organizations play a vital role in the health and wellness of families throughout the LincolnWay area,” said LincolnWay Community Bank president Mark Stevens. “As a locally owned and managed community bank, we must do all we can to support organizations like these that are on the front lines against this pandemic.”


LincolnWay Community Bank supports the dedicated law enforcement professionals who protect our community every day. We recently delivered gift baskets filled with snacks and well-wishes from our employees to the police departments in Mokena and New Lenox. Thanks to their commitment and sacrifice, we’re able to safely serve the families and businesses of our community.
