Company Overview

Get To Know Us

We’re focused on providing our communities with the right mix of leading banking products and services while giving you the best possible customer service. Since we started in Ridgway, Illinois in 1975, we have grown to more than 40 banking centers across five states and lending customers nationwide. While we’ve grown a lot since we first opened our doors, our dedication to serving our customers has never changed. We invite you to learn more about who we are at Banterra, and how we will go the extra mile to serve you.

Serving Our Customers Since 1975

At Banterra, we understand that banking is about relationships. It’s about understanding your goals and being the financial partner you need to help achieve those goals. We knew that in the beginning when we started as a small bank in Ridgway, Illinois in 1975. We know that now as we continue to grow as the largest, locally-owned bank in the region with more than $2 billion in assets.

We have the security and products you expect from big banks, with the local-style, personal service you want in a community bank. Whether you’re a potential or current customer, or one of our valued shareholders, we appreciate the opportunity to serve you. We’re committed to our communities, to you, and to our team members.

Our Mission

To be an exceptional organization that creates long-term value for our customers, employees and shareholders by providing opportunities and services that meet the financial needs of the communities we serve.

Supporting Our Communities

Whether it’s volunteering our time, promoting charities throughout the year in our branches or making financial donations, you can find Banterra’s ongoing support to needs within our communities. Our team donates time, talent and money to a variety of community causes and the largest line item in Banterra’s marketing budget is dedicated to simply giving back to our communities. We simply know the importance of giving back.

Sponsorships & Donations
We provide financial support and volunteers to a variety of community organizations and events throughout the communities we serve across five states. If you have a cause that you believe could use our support, all you have to do is complete either our sponsorship request or donation request form. Complete the proper form, print it and bring it in to your local Banterra office for our team to review.

Volunteering Time To Our Communities
We believe it takes more than financial donations and support to make our communities a better place. That’s why Banterra employees volunteer their time to support the organizations that make our communities so special. Why do we do this? Because we believe when we support others, we all rise. If you are in need of volunteers for your event, contact Banterra to see if we are available to help.
