Busey Bank is proud to partner with the Watershed Nature Center. Since coming into the Edwardsville market a year and a half ago, Busey has continued to support good causes and various organizations that make an impact in our community,” Rob Schwartz, Busey Bank’s Commercial Market President, said at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Access Nature on Friday, April 23. “Busey associates also have a long history of giving back to the community we serve, so we are proud to work for a bank that shares our community commitment. That’s why we chose to support the mission of the Nature Center and the Nature Preserve Foundation. We feel it’s important that all of us, and particularly our children, continue to learn about the importance of nature and protecting our environment. This wonderful facility will provide these educational opportunities.”

Being a community financial services organization means being a good neighbor—partnering for purpose and progress. From robust associate volunteering efforts to corporate-led sponsorship opportunities, Busey gives more than $1 million and countless volunteer hours annually to the places we call home. That’s been our promise since we opened our doors more than 150 years ago and it remains our promisetoday.
