The Monroe Bank & Trust “Charitable Contributions and Sponsorship Policy” provides a guideline for our allocation of resources, time and personnel to community organizations. Contributions may be financial or non-financial (such as assisting with manpower needs through our ENLIST employee volunteer program).
It is the policy of Monroe Bank & Trust to support activities, organizations and causes in our designated market area which consists of Monroe County, and parts of Wayne County, Michigan. Contributions or sponsorships must help to advance both a public purpose (education, health, safety, culture, general welfare, or critical need) for the residents of these areas and a corporate purpose (furtherance of the interests, image and responsibilities) of Monroe Bank & Trust.
Monroe Bank & Trust may contribute to and/or encourage and support its employee involvement with community and civic groups that address the following criteria:
Safety, health/wellness and human services
Economic Development activities
Conservation, environmental, and historic education causes
Arts, culture and humanities
Monroe Bank & Trust does not contribute to:
Individuals (including requests for medical treatment or care)
Social or athletic organizations
Trips, travel or cultural exchange programs
Organizations/events that discriminate on the basis of age, race, sex, religion or national origin
