Community Matters

Community matters a lot to us, and we know that it means a lot to you, too. It means building on good relationships and creating new ones. It means helping each other. It means working together to overcome obstacles as well as achieving new opportunities. We consider all Great Southern communities part of our extended family, so we do what we can to help where we are.

At Great Southern, we believe that banking and education go hand in hand. From the first connection with our customers, we are their financial educators; listening to their needs, and then guiding them through options to determine what works best for their lifestyle and financial security. Financial education extends into the community. Our associates are lending their financial expertise volunteering to help children, teens, adults and seniors as well as small businesses learn about many aspects of money management and banking.

Great Southern Bank has a strong history of partnering with the United Way. As our Company has grown into many communities, our involvement and support of local United Way agencies has also expanded. Great Southern Bank hosts an annual, Company-wide LIVE UNITED week, a fundraising and awareness campaign for United Way. Our Company and our associates financially support local United Way offices that reach every community we serve.

Community Matters is our corporate philanthropic program where Great Southern Bank takes an active role in our communities through community development loans, investments, financial grants and sponsorships, as well as promoting associate volunteerism and leadership in the community. Great Southern Bank values the hard work of nonprofit organizations throughout the world. However, due to limited resources, we are only able to support those that are located in the communities we serve. To request support from Great Southern Bank, please contact your local Great Southern Banking Center.
