Trustmark in the Community
Each year, Trustmark pledges a percentage of pre-tax earnings to support our local communities. Trustmark’s unique, two-level service commitment involves associates working as individuals and together with the company to give back to the community and improve the quality of life for all.
Each year at the Lake Forest, Ill., headquarters, associates participate in a Giving Tree with Lake County Cares to help provide Christmas gifts for needy families in Lake County. Associates throughout the country volunteer their time to support local charities of their choosing.
The Trustmark Foundation
, established in 1984, actively supports associate volunteerism through program donations and volunteer grants. In 2015, the Foundation distributed nearly $1.1 million in cash and gifts-in-kind. Foundation grants and programs directly support the United Way, community health, safety, education, and urban and cultural enrichment.
More than 50 Lake Forest associates, including members of the Executive Leadership Team (ELT), volunteered their time during three United Way Days of Caring in 2016. Associates sorted book donations at Bernie’s Book Bank, packed food at the Northern Illinois Food Bank and refreshed an Early Learning Trail at the Robert W. Rolek Community Center.
