EFFINGHAM – Midland States Bank Foundation recently announced a $5,000 contribution to The First Tee of Greater St. Louis program.
The program fosters the relationship between character education and academic success for inner city youth. The curriculum integrates golf as a method to develop life and leadership skills.
The Foundation, established in 2011, was created to provide for the improvement of the general welfare, education and health in the communities where the bank operates and where its employees reside. Since its creation, the foundation has contributed more than $275,000 to non-profit organizations throughout Midland’s footprint.
Midland has numerous locations in Metro East.
“Through the Midland States Bank Foundation, we enhance our ability to live up to our ‘Great Strength. More Heart.’ commitment, by providing resources that can have a favorable impact in our footprint,” commented Leon Holschbach, CEO and president of Midland States Bancorp. “We are only as strong as our communities.
