“We are thrilled to award these inspiring organizations with funds that will help further their mission to actively lift up women and families and help them pursue their hopes and dreams,” Commercial Lending Account Manager and WLN Vice President Claire McGuire said.

“To make a direct impact on the communities we serve outside the walls of the bank is a meaningful endeavor that we will continue to embrace in the years ahead,” she said.

Founded in 2018 and led by a committee of employees, the Mid Penn Bank Women’s Leadership Network was created as a way for female colleagues at all levels to make connections, share knowledge and experiences, learn about leadership, and enrich their professional development journeys.

Recognizing Mid Penn’s profound dedication to the communities it serves, the WLN formed a Small Grant Committee in 2021, aimed at supporting nonprofit organizations within the Bank’s footprint that educate and empower women and girls.
