Big Hearts Involved in their Communities

Touchstone is a community bank with a 112-year tradition of giving back to the communities it serves. Our business is to grow as a community bank –ultimately helping to grow the local economy. However, this is not the only way we serve.

Within the bank beat the hearts of compassionate and giving individuals who make up Touchstone. Their giving of volunteer time and talent has a real impact in their communities. Touchstone is there year-round – whether it’s a small gesture or a big check, we have a genuine desire to make a positive impact  and help our friends and neighbors.
