FSB in the Community
The Farmers State Bank is committed to promoting the culture of volunteering back into our community. The Board supports this culture by allowing employees to volunteer during Bank hours, up to three hours per quarter.
This initiative not only benefits our community, it also provides FSB's employees with an opportunity to grow through volunteering and to gain the satisfaction of contributing to their community.

- 941 Employee Volunteer Hours
- $24,097 Given Back to the Community

- 76 Community Sponsored Events
- $625 Given to Memorials
E.L.F. (Employee Love Fund)
The Farmers State Bank established the Employee Love Fund (E.L.F.) as a way to encourage employee participation in raising money for community needs. Money is raised throughout the year with fun promotions such as '$5 Friday's jeans day', silent auctions or free-will luncheons and bake sales. Monthly promotions are encouraged, as well as seasonally themed events. All promotions are geared to make raising money fun!
Annual events, such as Race Against Breast Cancer and the Jackson County United Way have been beneficiaries of money raised, as well as special needs that come up in the community. Donations have gone to help restock the local food bank, as well as purchasing 'Essential Bags' and toys for the Jackson County Christmas Bureau. Community organizations are encouraged to share their needs with an employee of the Bank.
Employees at The Farmers State Bank take great pride in the community in which they live. The E.L.F. project has been a successful way for them to give back; to a community that gives them so much.
2017 E.L.F. donations totaled $435 and 10 'Essential Bags'.
