(Warrensburg, MO) U.S. Bank representatives Josh Beebe, MaryBeth Martin, and Jamie List presented a $10,000 check to Johnson County Economic Development (JCEDC) President Taylor Elwell and Director Tracy Brantner in support of JCEDC’s program of work.  With over 60 volunteers and partners, JCEDC positively affects business development, placemaking, entrepreneurship, talent development, and regionalism and in doing so promotes the economic health of Johnson County, Central Missouri region, and the state of Missouri. 

“We support JCEDC and its volunteers for all their efforts to improve the economic well-being of our bank customers and their families in the Johnson County area.  U.S. Bank has been a financial partner in economic development for the region for more than 12 consecutive years.  This foundation of support has enabled both organizations to continue to achieve mutually benefiting economic goals,” said MaryBeth Martin, U.S. Bank Assistant Vice President. 

“Economic development impacts not only opportunities to work, but all aspects of life in our region. The financial support from U.S. Bank allows JCEDC to assist and serve Johnson County communities, business and industry, and individuals.” said Elwell.

By partnering with organizations that focus on economic and workforce advancement, the U.S. Bank Foundation Community Possible Grant Program specifically supports causes that create stable jobs, better homes and vibrant communities. In 2020, the U.S. Bank Foundation provided $37 million in grant funding, matching gifts, and dollars for doing contributions.
