Dubuque, IA — Heartland Financial USA, Inc. (NASDAQ: HTLF) and its 11 member banks announced contributions totaling $1.2 million to support nonprofit organizations in our communities that are leading the response to challenges created by COVID-19.

“We are honored to provide support to the organizations that serve our communities,” said Bruce K. Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer. “I am grateful for these groups and their work to address the challenges so many are experiencing in the wake of COVID-19.”

Heartland and its member banks are contributing to nonprofit organizations across the 12 states where we live and work. These nonprofits are primarily focused on providing basic needs such as food and housing, child care and youth activities, and supporting health personnel, first responders and their families.

“Many people, businesses and communities need additional resources and financial help,” said Lee. “We are donating funds to some of the organizations that are working directly with those affected by COVID-19. We need to work together to address the impacts of this pandemic.”

Throughout the year, nonprofits in our communities count on Heartland and its member banks for financial support as well as our time and talents. Employees are provided with one full paid day every year to volunteer for community service. In 2019, our employees volunteered a total of 31,000 hours of service and we donated $2.3 million in contributions and sponsorships.
