Over 120 years of community strength.

We believe we are only as strong as the communities we serve. That’s why we continually strive to use our knowledge, talents and resources to make a meaningful difference in the neighborhoods where we work and live.

Peoples Bank Foundation

The Peoples Bank Foundation was established in 2003 with the mission to improve the lives of community members by supporting important causes throughout our footprint. The Foundation centers its grant contributions around five areas, including Community Investment & Economic Development, Youth & Education, Health & Human Services, Arts & Culture and Environment. In 2023, the Peoples Bank Foundation awarded $692,415 in grants and $32,500 in scholarships. Over $7 million has been donated to local non-profit organizations since its inception in 2003.

If you are interested in applying for a monetary donation for your community or organization, we would love to hear about your needs.

Robert E. Evans Scholarship

Robert E. Evans began his career with Peoples Bank in 1970 as a trust officer and became the first president and CEO of Peoples Bancorp, Inc. Throughout his 35 years of service, he inspired those around him to conduct themselves with professionalism and integrity.

We created the Robert E. Evans Education Fund to honor his memory in grateful appreciation of his dedication to persistence, determination and belief in the power of learning. Over 50 scholarships totaling more than $75,000 have been awarded to high school students from 2022 to 2023.

In Our Communities

Our associates are encouraged to volunteer in their local communities, and they answer the call by continually donating their time, talent and resources. In 2020, we also founded the Jeans for Hunger program. Every Friday and Saturday, Peoples Bank associates in jeans donate a portion of their paycheck to support local non-profits that strive to end hunger. In 2023, the Jeans for Hunger Program donated over $84,000 to local food banks and pantries in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky.
