First Merchants Serves

We're committed to our communities

We're committed to our communities
At First Merchants, community commitment has been our philosophy since day one. It’s more than words; it’s how we do business. We are bankers working with customers in the cities, towns and communities in which they live, and we support and encourage our employees’ active involvement.

Our First Merchants Serves program encourages volunteer efforts with a unified message of service. The company offers paid time off Community Days for our team to use on organized Community Day programs. Dozens of employees participate each year, serving organizations like the Animal Rescue Fund, First Choice for Women, Read to Succeed, Salvation Army’s Distribution Cheer, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Operation Feed, Gleaner’s Food Bank, Little Red Door, and more.

For more information about requesting employee volunteers in the Michigan Region please contact us.
