Casual Friday for a Cause


Every Friday, employees at Northwestern Bank can choose to wear casual clothes by donating $1 to their branch’s non-profit of choice. The bank matches every donation that employees make. While Casual Fridays are fun for employees who want to wear less formal attire to work, it also supports creating a positive impact within our local communities. Each of our branches chooses a different charity of the month to give too.

Northwestern Bank has a mission to build stronger communities where people matter. A core value of our bank and team members is to create a positive impact.

Celebrating a casual day for a cause each week is also a great reminder of the importance of giving back when you can.
