Project REACh: Roundtable for Economic Access and Change

Stearns Bank is committed to reducing barriers that prevent full, equal, and fair participation in the nation's economy through Project REACh (Roundtable for Economic Access and Change).  


"I believe in Project REACh’s mission, and in MDIs as an essential part of our banking system. As banks, none of us can do everything needed to serve minority communities, so we have to do a good job of partnering together so we can serve customers better."

Stearns Bank President and CEO
