Our Featured Charity

This Able Veteran

This Able Veteran (TAV) is dedicated to helping veterans who suffer from psychological and physical injuries as a result of their service. The program teaches trauma recovery skills and provides a specially trained service dog as a working partner. Dogs are trained to respond to signs of anxiety and nightmares, and to intervene, prompting the veteran to use the trauma recovery skills he or she has learned. To learn more about TAV, go to www.thisableveteran.org. This will be the seventh year Banterra has supported TAV through a company-wide promotion, with proceeds reaching nearly $60,000 since the beginning. Banterra sells TAV t-shirts in our branches, sponsors and volunteers at events including their annual Color Run fundraiser and provides meals and welcome baskets to veterans and dogs during their Trauma Resiliency sessions.

In addition to charities, Banterra supports universities, colleges and schools K-12 grades; civic organizations such as chambers of commerce and Rotary Clubs, food banks and pantries, as well as area hospital foundations.  Below is a small sampling of the charities that Banterra supports annually:

Family Service Society (FSS) has been serving as a crisis resource to the Paducah/McCracken County community since 1927. It is because of supporters like Banterra Bank that we have been able to continue this mission for over 90 years. It most certainly takes a village, and we’re honored to have Banterra Bank in our village!

The Community Partnership of Southeast Missouri maximizes resources to develop and deliver a wide range of services that improve the lives of individuals, children, and families to build strong neighborhoods. We recently partnered with Banterra to finance low income housing for our program. The personal service we received was unlike any other bank we have experienced. They are great to work with and their financing options cover a wide-array of needs.

We value our partnership with Banterra Bank, not only with the banking service that they provide to us, but with their generous support and promotion of the work that we do. They have helped raise awareness of This Able Veteran and the veteran community that we serve. To show our appreciation, we placed a Banterra patch on the vest of our service dogs that graduated in 2018.
