Prevail Bank Donates $81,800 Through Charitable Contributions Program

Proudly Supporting our Communities - Fall 2022

At Prevail Bank, our goal is to help our customers, communities and employees pursue what’s possible. Being a community bank means that we are always looking for ways to enhance the quality of life in our surrounding communities. We believe that through the power of donation, we can continuously play a part in the success of local organizations, and in the community as a whole. Those organizations that applied and received a Charitable Contribution this fall are listed below.

It warms our heart to be able to contribute and assist so many!

The Children’s Museum of Eau Claire

Prevail Bank pledged $10,000 to The Children’s Museum of Eau Claire; $5,000 of that pledge was paid this fall. The Museum is moving (rebuilding). It intends to add 6,134 square feet of exhibit and classroom space, a new preschool and childcare addition, plus family friendly parking that’s adjacent to the building. A grand opening at 126 N. Barstow Street, Eau Claire, is tentatively planned for the first week of January 2023.

Boys & Girls Clubs of the Greater Chippewa Valley

Five-thousand dollars ($5,000) was provided to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Greater Chippewa Valley to help cover the youth development programming expenses of a new Club in the Altoona Intermediate School. The program is open to all families. Club kids receive homework assistance, mental health resiliency skills, career exploration experiences, financial literacy education, hands-on STEM learning, leadership skills, and an appreciation of the arts, music, and community service.

Recent vandalism completely closed the Owen-based buildings for all purposes and is the impetus behind the request.

Stevens Point Fire Fighters Charitable Foundation

Prevail Bank provided a donation of $2,500 to the Stevens Point Fire Fighters Charitable Foundation’s “Operation Warm” so winter jackets could be purchased for those elementary children whose families are financially challenged and may not otherwise have the funds to purchase one. The Stevens Point Fire Department fulfills jacket requests from 16 different schools in Portage County.
