2021 Community Commitment Awards Submission

  • Entry Category: Volunteerism
  • Asset Size: Medium

As part of the Busey Promise to act locally and strengthen the communities where we live and work, Busey Drives Generosity is a monthly campaign that encourages associates to generously give—benefiting our neighbors through various donation drives and charitable initiatives. From accepting socks for the homeless to dental supplies benefiting local health organizations—associates and customer donations have delivered aid to local organizations throughout the Busey footprint. This campaign includes a Little Free Library program that allows associates, customers, and community members to participate in a book exchange outside participating banking centers. Crafted by our Community Relations team, Busey Drives Generosity is a groundbreaking program that went into effect in 2020. The campaign has represented our Promise to support the arts, advocate for our youth, and help those in need. We’re proud to give back to our communities—doing the right thing for our customers and building trusted relationships that span generations.
