Supporting Our Community
SFC Bank feels a strong responsibility to support non-profit organizations which enhance the quality of life in the Springfield area.
Due to the demand for funds being well in excess of our giving capacity, the decision regarding contributions will be made by our President or CEO in consultation with the bank’s directors, management, and employees, as appropriate.
Our contributions will be limited to those organizations located in our community who have as their mission statement and focus their servicing in our area. To assist in determining the organizations which will be considered for support, following is a list of categories from which requests will be reviewed:

All requests for funds must be supported by a formal written request which includes a history of the organization, its leadership, and purpose of the funds. Additional information in support of the request may also be required. Requests should be forwarded to Whitney Morrow at 2006 S. Glenstone, Springfield MO 65804 or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. It is the responsibility of our President or CEO to respond to the request within 20 days by personal letter approving, denying, or requesting additional information.
