First Business was recently awarded a Wisconsin Corporate Citizenship Award by Corporate Report Magazine in recognition for its community support and employee relations.
Directors and staff of the bank wholeheartedly support making contributions to local charitable organizations in our market area. Our employees are approached individually by acquaintances, friends, and organizations and the giving process is difficult. In 2004, First Business established the First Business Charitable Foundation, Inc. to provide a funding mechanism and appropriate record keeping for the charitable contributions of First Business.
