Bank on Kindness®

A Community-Minded Commitment
from North Shore Bank

"No Act of Kindness, No Matter How Small, is Ever Wasted."

As a community bank, giving back is important to us. Our Bank on Kindness initiative finds meaningful, fun, and special ways throughout the year to carry out acts of kindness from The Bank of You. We look for opportunities – big and small – in our communities to offer help to others and lend our support. North Shore Bank is a community-minded bank, it’s at the heart of what we do. Thank you for contributing to our community campaigns for those in need.

Thanks for spreading kindness with a donation to your local food pantry.

In February of 2022, our customers, employees, and community members showed support for their favorite participating food pantry with an online donation in our Bank on Kindness campaign. North Shore Bank also gave $4,500 in matching funds ($500 to each food pantry) and over $1,700 in groceries collected in its 13th Annual Race for the Hungry to assist food pantries. We’re pleased to have been able to donate over $6,200 to food pantries throughout eastern Wisconsin in our communities.
The donations will help those experiencing hardships during uncertain times and back the work being done by our local food pantries, their staff, and volunteers. Together, we can feel proud to lend support to them to continue their essential work—providing much-needed nutrition and care to the families, elderly, working poor and temporarily unemployed who live in our communities. Thank you!

Thank you for helping us raise nearly $10,000 in two weeks for local Veterans!

Honor Flight LogosWe are thrilled to share the donation drive results from our Bank on Kindness campaign for Honor Flight organizations in northeast and southeast Wisconsin. 

A total of $9,690 was donated to support local Veterans, with community donations of $5,690 and the bank full matching dollars of $2,000 to each organization, Old Glory Honor Flight and Stars and Stripes Honor Flight. 

We are pleased with how the campaign went and grateful to all who supported the Honor Flights and paid tribute to our local Veterans. With your help, we raised enough money to cover the costs of 19 individuals to have the Honor Flight experience. Thank you!

The community had the opportunity to donate to the campaign from Nov. 1 – Nov. 14, 2021. Previous Bank on Kindness initiatives have raised funds for area food pantries as well as animal-related non-profits.

Grateful ‘For the Love of Animals’ Support

For the Love of AnimalsIn May 2021, North Shore Bank held a matching funds drive for local non-profits who care for the animals that bring us joy at Zoos and Humane Societies in eastern Wisconsin. 🐾
The online donation drive benefited the Door County Humane Society, Elmbrook Humane Society, Green Bay Humane Society, Milwaukee County Zoo, Wisconsin Humane Society (Milwaukee, WI), NEW Zoo & Adventure Park (Northeastern Wisconsin Zoo, Green Bay, WI), Ozaukee Humane Society, Racine Humane Society, Racine Zoo, Safe Harbor Humane Society (Kenosha, WI), Washington County Humane Society.
Customers and community members showed support for their favorite participating animal organization with a donation For the Love of Animals and North Shore Bank matched donations made between May 1 and May 31, 2021, up to $500 for each non-profit. As a result, together, we donated nearly $9,000.
We appreciate all who helped spread kindness with a donation – thank you.
