Season of Giving

Planters Bank and its employees are significant investors of time, talent and resources in each community where we live and work. Whether it's our time spent “giving back” to make a difference in our communities or supporting a worthy initiative, Planters Bank and our employees are dedicated to making a positive difference in each city, town or neighborhood where we have a presence.

One of our favorite times of year is during Planters Bank’s “Season of Giving” … annually from October through December. During the Season of Giving, we have a little extra fun with our donations and the non-profit organizations we support. Each Planters Bank office chooses a local non-profit organization for which they would like to raise funds to support the valuable work of that particular organization. Then the fun really begins when we get the communities involved!

12 area organizations throughout Western Kentucky and Tennessee will be supported through the Season of Giving campaign.

The Planters Bank Season of Giving is a bank tradition that has a goal of bringing awareness to non-profit organizations’ missions at the same time as fundraising for the organizations. “As a community bank, it is our responsibility to give back to our community. The Season of Giving is a great way for our employees, our communities, and our non-profits to all come together for these great causes,” says Planters Bank CEO Elizabeth McCoy.

This Year's Items

Planters Bank worked with local makers to produce two special gift items - one Kentucky gift and one Tennessee gift. Their custom gift tins are filled with a custom designed flour sack towel as well as a Kentucky or Tennessee shaped ornament. The designs that adorn each of the items were hand-drawn and produced especially for the Season of Giving by local custom branded merchandise agency Williams Advertising. Each set retails for $20 and is available for purchase in every Planters Bank location beginning today.

Planters Bank purchased the gift items from local makers. Those items are then sold in each branch to support the branch’s featured Season of Giving organization, with 100% of that purchase price donated directly to the organization supported in that branch (see list below).

In addition to supporting these groups through purchases in each branch, the bank is donating $25 for every checking or savings account opened mentioning the Season of Giving when visiting a Planters Bank location.

The Planters Bank Season of Giving is a bank tradition that has a goal of supporting community organizations. Planters Bank CEO Elizabeth McCoy says, “Each organization we supported this Season of Giving supports children in each of our communities. Whether it’s providing shoes, food, or experiences, each of these 12 organizations make such an impact on our communities, and we’re so glad to be able to support them.”

Planters Bank worked with a local small business to produce two special custom gift items for the Season of Giving - one Kentucky gift and one Tennessee gift, sold in each Planters Bank branch. Planters Bank purchased the items outright, allowing 100% of the purchase price of those items ($20/gift) to be donated to the Season of Giving organizations.
