Move Your Business Bank Accounts Local

For businesses the choice is clear on why to move your bank accounts locally into a Community Bank in the Lift Investing program. Lift Investing is an economic development program that partners the best community banks for businesses to strengthen the local economy. Our “held here, lent here” message is resonating everywhere, so join the campaign.


Lifting Communities Through Local Banking

Lift Investing works with businesses and agencies to move their banking accounts and investments into actively lending Community Banks in our program. Getting these businesses and agencies to adopt our locally implemented fiscal targeting policies creates long-term relationships for our banks because these partners understand the economic benefit of moving their dollars into local institutions and keeping those relationships long-term.


Emergency Investment & Relief Program

In response to the unprecedented economic impact of COVID-19, Lift Investing, in partnership with local cities and counties (“jurisdictions”), has established the “Emergency Investment & Relief Program” with its existing community banking partners (“program lenders”) to deploy local emergency loans to businesses directly affected by the ongoing crisis. Businesses must be located within the boundaries of participating jurisdictions.

Two decades from now, we wanted to look around and see our local economy thriving because we made a decision to begin lift investing by bringing our money back into the community so that it can be lent in our community. Moving our district banking accounts into a local bank was an easy process and others should do the same.
