Community, education, and the arts. By giving to organizations which support these goals, we believe our community will grow and prosper.
As Columbia's only locally owned bank, we feel it is our responsibility to contribute to the economic vitality of our city. Whether it’s supporting local charities, sponsoring fundraising events, or contributing to community efforts, our goal is simple: give back to the community and to the people we serve.
In 1984, Landmark Bank was one of the first businesses in town to partner with one of Columbia's schools as a Partner in Education. Landmark Bank's partner is Blue Ridge Elementary. Within the partnership, bankers serve as adult mentors for students, classroom readers, and expert advisers for the children's Mustang Bank. The bank sponsors an annual BBQ as a reward for students exhibiting good work and behavior.
Landmark Bank holds a special place for the arts, as shown by sponsorship of the University Concert Series, Museum of Art & Archaeology, and True / False Film Festival, the area's premier independent film exhibit.
Our bankers are your neighbors. Many of them grew up here. All are devoted to making Columbia a better place to live. Individually, our bankers donate their time and money to our local community organizations, churches, food pantries, schools, and youth clubs and teams.
Landmark bankers serve on the board of directors for many community organizations including the Chamber of Commerce, Women’s Council of Realtors, United Way, Rotary Clubs, Columbia Public Library, Job Point, Cancer Research Center, Meals on Wheels, Boy Scouts of America, and the Voluntary Action Center.
Collectively, the Landmark team is consistently recognized as a Pacesetter for United Way. Bankers also coordinate monthly fundraising efforts to support various local community organizations, and the money raised is matched by the bank.
Additionally, bankers may contribute a portion of their paycheck each month to the Staff Charitable Fund, which donates money to worthy organizations such as the American Cancer Society, Children's Miracle Network, Central Missouri Humane Society, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Rainbow House.
