Amazing things can happen with just one act of kindness. That’s why year after year we encourage PREMIER associates to reach out and get involved. And, each year PREMIER associates have exceeded our expectations. When we join together those single acts become a community of caring.

We are pleased to announce that in the past three years, our associates, together with our sister organization, First PREMIER Bank, donated nearly 90,000 volunteer hours. We appreciate the passion that our associates bring not only to serving our customers, but also serving the community.

Over 600 agencies and activities throughout South Dakota are served through corporate sponsorship and employee volunteer hours. Here are just a few of the organizations and causes we support:

    • Local United Way chapters
    • Sioux Falls Parks and Recreation Summer Track Meets
    • Junior Achievement
    • Volunteers of America
    • Big Brothers Big Sisters
    • American Cancer Society
    • Local elementary, middle, and high schools and South Dakota colleges and universities
    • Special Olympics
    • Youth sporting activities
    • School-based mentoring programs
