Non-profit organizations help our communities thrive, and Lincoln Savings Bank takes part in charitable giving to 501C (3) organization through the LSB Foundation. If your charitable organization is seeking grant opportunities in one of the communities we do business in, submit a form as instructed below.
Philanthropy Helps Carry Out Passionate Community Stewardship
The LSB Foundation was established in 2005 for the purpose of supporting LSB’s charitable giving tradition in the communities we serve. LSB’s philanthropic philosophy has been an integral part of the company culture since our founding more than 100 years ago. The LSB Foundation demonstrates LSB’s commitment to our core value of Passionate Community Stewardship.
In 2008, the LSB Foundation established disaster funds for victims of the May 25th tornado and spring floods that affected thousands of Iowans. Funds were collected and distributed to the communities and individuals affected. All administrative fees associated with the management and distribution of the collected funds were waived by the LSB Foundation. The Foundation was grateful to have been a part of this effort and was moved by the generosity of the individuals and businesses that made contributions.
