Nonprofit organizations to benefit from #Gift2Giving endeavor


Community State Bank, a $561 million locally owned and operated community bank, is headquartered in Union Grove and has proudly served the communities of Southeastern WI since 1898. For more information, please visit CSB online at

Community State Bank recently began the fourth season of their employee-driven donation campaign #Gift2Giving. In October, each CSB employee was presented with $100 to donate back into the communities of Racine, Kenosha and Walworth counties.

CSB is pleased to announce that all 87 employees are participating in this year’s program. Now, until the end of
the year, CSB team members will be delivering their donations to nonprofit organizations throughout Southeast

“The #Gift2Giving campaign has had a remarkable impact on our staff and communities,” said CSB President and
CEO, Scott Huedepohl. “It’s become a part of our culture and we look forward to it every year. We’re honored to be
bringing it back for it’s fourth season.”

“The #Gift2Giving campaign has had a remarkable impact on our staff and communities.”

CSB employees were encouraged to work together and combine their #Gift2Giving funds to create a larger impact
with their donations. In addition, employees were also given the opportunity to make a personal donation, which
were also matched by CSB dollar for dollar. Over $10,000 in campaign funds are being distributed among 12 nonprofit organizations.

“Southeast Wisconsin is filled with unique non-profit organizations that make a tremendous difference to our
community,” explained Marketing Communications Coordinator, Eloissa Heigl. “#Gift2Giving provides our staff with
the opportunity to thank these great organizations for what they do, while also providing a platform to share their
story and hopefully inspire others to give back too.”

Community State Bank will be documenting a majority of the donations through videos, podcasts, photos and
journal entries. The first donation to Cops N’ Kids Reading Center in Racine has already been posted to the#Gift2Giving blog.
