The story of Arvest is one of commitment started by our founders, an intense dedication to focusing on the customer above all else. This philosophy has remained the same during our growth from a small bank to a network of community-focused regional banks able to provide a complete range of financial services.
Staying true to these principles has been the common thread throughout our history. We will always be active and involved members of the communities we serve and we will work to put the needs of our customers first as we continue to fulfill our mission – “People helping people find financial solutions for life.”
Serving All of Our Communities Large and Small
Arvest operates in the more than 110 communities across Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma, with 14 community-oriented banks that have their own local president, board of directors and management team. Our commitment to the local level is unusual for a bank our size, but we believe it is one of the values that makes us unique.
At Arvest Bank, we believe in donating our time and resources to help shape, support and strengthen the communities where we live, work and play. We want to provide our customers the products and services that best fit their needs, but at the same time, we desire to make our communities better, whether it’s through volunteering, providing sponsorships or making small business and community development loans.
Our associates are deeply involved in our communities, volunteering time and donating resources to make the communities we call home better for us all. Whether they are helping feed the food-insecure in our footprint with initiatives like Million Meals, volunteering in local schools or supporting nonprofit organizations, our involvement makes a difference by delivering a lasting and positive impact in our communities.
Committed to the Community
One of the ways Arvest serves the communities in which we operate is through the giving of our time and resources. Each year Arvest associates donate countless hours of their time in community service work—from volunteering in local schools to fundraising events; serving on nonprofit boards and committees to disaster relief. We understand that being a community bank means being a part of the community; a responsibility we take seriously.
Arvest also supports many worthy causes through financial contributions to nonprofit community organizations. Wherever someone is working to make a positive difference in our communities, we are honored to support and work alongside them.
