Enterprise Bank & Trust, the banking subsidiary of Enterprise Financial Services Corp (NASDAQ: EFSC), received an outstanding partner award from Prosperity Connection® for our financial commitment and education support.

Prosperity Connection awarded three corporations along with three individuals the special recognition and distinction at a breakfast ceremony on Wednesday, July 19, 2017. “Prosperity Connection’s mission of financial inclusion and empowerment relies upon strong partnerships with volunteers, foundations, corporations, and financial institutions. Enterprise Bank & Trust has stepped up to assist our organization on many fronts, not the least of, is our fight against predatory payday and title lenders. The $500,000 line of credit we were able to open through the bank has given our operations the capital needed to meet the short-term loan needs of economically vulnerable St. Louisans. We can’t do this work alone. Thankfully, we have Enterprise Bank & Trust as a valued partner!” said Paul Woodruff, the Executive Director for Prosperity Connection.

Prosperity Connection is a 501(c)3 whose mission is to strengthen the St. Louis region by providing financial education, affordable financial services, resources, and support to low-to-moderate income populations in an effort to improve their standard of living and better their lifestyle. Some of their services include low cost check cashing, short-term loans, bill-pay, and reloadable debit cards to those who cannot qualify for a bank account or choose to not go to traditional banks.

“We are incredibly honored to receive this award as a testament to our commitment and our goal to strengthen communities,” said Robyn Heidger, Senior Vice President of Strategic Alliances and Inclusion for Enterprise Bank & Trust. In March, Enterprise Bank & Trust announced a Community Benefits Agreement with a group of nonprofit organizations to commit $1.8 Billion over a three-year period in investments for low income and minority neighborhoods and their residents in St. Louis and Kansas City. This is an ambitious, voluntary program that the group of non-profits with which we work consider to be groundbreaking. “In our three-year plan, we aim to have a substantial impact on thousands of people and the overall quality of life in our community. Partnerships with non-profits like Prosperity Connection make our efforts a reality and we are thankful for the work they do every day,” concluded Robyn.
