A tradition of community support and success
Our founder, Frank Larson, has had a philosophy of community support since the very beginning. This has continued to guide us in everything we do and shaped us into the supercommunity bank we are today.
We have a strong commitment to community support and take responsibility for its success. We invest in our communities because it’s the right thing to do, and feel fortunate to be able to give back monetarily. Starion has 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 athletic programs, hunger relief to college scholarships. We know that these organizations help make the community strong and vibrant, and we’re proud to support so many groups that share our mission to build a better community.
“I’m a member of a couple of communities – Medora and Bismarck-Mandan – and you look in those communities and can see Starion helping in a number of projects that benefit the community,” said Randy Hatzenbuhler, President of the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation.
Getting the whole team involved
As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, it’s especially important that each of our employees has a connection to how the bank gives back to the community. That’s why we coined 2019 the Year of Giving & Caring. As part of this, each employee has been given $500 to donate to a charity of their choice. Some employees donated to help those who are less fortunate, others to our four-legged friends in need. Some felt strongly about supporting our troops while others felt called to give the money to disease research. We know that not everyone has the funds to support the charity they are passionate about so it has given us great joy to make this possible for our employees.
Another big way we give back is through the time we share with local organizations. As part of our anniversary celebration, employees also received two days of Volunteer Time Off to make a difference in their community. It’s our way of helping our employees make an impact.
“I’m very grateful our employees express such an interest in living out Starion’s values as a supercommunity bank,” said Craig Larson, Starion Bank CEO. “By giving back, they make the community a better place and positively impact less fortunate members of our community!"
