Now Accepting 2015 Donation Applications

Paducah Bank is now accepting requests for its 2015 Community Giving Program. Each year the bank provides funds to a variety of charitable organizations in the community and asks groups to submit an application for funds so that the bank can review the needs of local projects and organizations.

“Through the years Paducah Bank has substantially supported the many vital and valued projects undertaken by both charitable groups and civic institutions in our community,” said Mardie Herndon, President of Paducah Bank. “Our bank has a long history of community involvement, both from a contributory standpoint as well as a dedication to hands-on volunteer efforts.”

“Our name says it all,” adds Susan Guess, senior vice president of marketing. “We have been Paducah Bank since our inception and are this community’s only remaining locally owned bank. We not only provide a safe, reliable place to do business, but we are the bank of and for the people of Paducah. We believe that we can be more than a bank. We can be a partner with our friends and neighbors who devote limitless time and effort to benefit our community. And we will always want to be a part of that.”

To provide a complete and thorough review of each charitable request, the bank asks each organization who wishes to solicit funding from Paducah Bank to provide details about their respective program or project. The bank accepts donations each year with an October deadline and then reviews and makes appropriations in January. “This allows us to be more thoughtful about our giving approach and to more widely spread our dollars throughout the community,” Guess added. “Anyone who wishes to request funding should complete our donation form. The form is available on the website ( under the “Get Wowed” link. Applications may be printed and completed or can be submitted electronically. We also have brochures at each location that explains our giving philosophy and who is eligible to receive funds.”

Questions can be sent to Susan Guess at The deadline for submitting a request is October 15.
