Iowa State Savings Bank (ISSB) has announced the bank will be donating $75,000 over a five-year period to the Union County Fair. ISSB is a leading sponsor of the fair’s “Building on Tradition” capital campaign. Their donation will help enhance the fairgrounds and provide modern facilities to promote youth development and create educational, social, cultural and economic opportunities for Union County. As a leading sponsor, the new show pavilion will be called the Iowa State Savings Bank Show Pavilion.
ISSB has a mission to act with others to sustain and enhance the quality of life and opportunity locally. The bank has grown from the communities they serve and recognizes the importance of supporting local organizations to build mutual respect within our communities. Working with others to sustain and enhance the quality of the environment we all live and work in has always been a critical goal for the bank.
Adam Snodgrass, bank CEO and CFO, said, “I commend the Union County Fair Board on their vision and for all the time and effort the fair board members have put forth so their vision can become a reality. ISSB is proud to support local causes, especially causes such as this project that have a significant benefit to a wide range of community members.”
“Growing up on a farm, 4-H and FFA were a big part of my childhood,” bank President Kevin Stewart said. “I was able to learn many lifelong skills that I still use today. The bank and I are very supportive of the Union County Fair and all of the work they do for the kids in the local 4-H and FFA programs. When approached by the fair board, we recognized this as a great opportunity to support the achievements and commitments of our youth, volunteers and fair board.”
The Union County Fair Board thanks ISSB for their generosity towards the Building on Tradition Capital Campaign. ISSB shares the vision the board is not simply building buildings, rather it is investing in the youth, and ultimately investing in the future of Union County. With this donation, the board now has raised nearly $950,000 and is working toward completing the fundraising efforts so it will be able to start construction in August.
