April is Community Banking Month
Where you choose to bank matters. Consumers have the power to make change happen at the community level by aligning with their community bank and putting their money to work in the neighborhood that they call home.
- Community banks respect the communities they serve by doing right by their customers and community. Community banks and local communities have symbiotic relationships - one cannot thrive without the other.
- Community banks are relationship lenders. they know their customer and understand their financial needs, unlike larger banks that take a transaction-based approach to lending.
- Community banks understand and celebrate local economies. As small businesses themselves, community banks are an unequivocal resource for entrepreneurs looking to launch a small business.
- Community banks give back. Serving local communities is second nature to community banks.
We also asked our Facebook community why they feel community banking is so important. This is what they told us! Read Here
"We believe in giving back to the community. It's not only our place of business, it's our home too."

A group of community banks from across the country banded together to create a video to spread the word about the positive impact community banks have upon the communities they serve.
Glenview State Bank was happy to be one of the 20 participating community banks.
