A tradition of community support
Giving our resources
At Starion Bank, we’re proud to say we’re a supercommunity bank. That means more than just being a local bank: It means having a strong commitment to community support and taking responsibility for its success.
Starion is fortunate to be able to give back monetarily to our communities. We’ve donated millions of dollars to charities and local organizations in North Dakota and Wisconsin. Last year, major donations were given to local groups ranging from arts organizations to chambers of commerce, scholarship programs to hunger relief. We’ve also supported many large community development projects, including the recent Starion Sports Complex in Mandan, N.D.
“Giving back to the community is a core value of Starion Bank,” said Craig Larson, Starion Bank CEO and Chairman of the Board. “These organizations 18 19 help make the community strong and vibrant. Starion is proud to support so many groups that share our mission to build a better community.”

Another big way we give back is through our staff’s interest in giving their time to local organizations. During work time or off time, we are very supportive of our employees’ efforts to make a difference in their community. Whether volunteering for Starion community events, holding office on a city council, getting involved in local organizations or coordinating fundraisers, many of our employees are passionate about donating their time and do so in many ways.
“As a community bank, we believe it’s important to support our employees and their volunteer efforts,” said Larson. “It’s an honor to work with individuals who care so much about making the
