Igniting Prosperity

At TS Bank, we are more than a community bank; we are a community prosperity engine. Working together, we strive every day to create an increasingly positive impact on our clients and our communities.

We Ignite Prosperity® through the following five areas:

  • Community Reinvestment Efforts
  • Products and Services
  • Lending to Local Businesses
  • Employment Opportunities
  • TS Institute

"Ignite" defined as "to evoke emotion, to excite, to set in motion," and "prosperity" defined as "to thrive or cause to succeed" and, from the Latin prosperåre to succeed, from prosperus fortunate; (i.e.) "PRO" means (FOR) + spés means (HOPE) is what Ignite Prosperity® means to TS Bank. We are for hope!

We like to give back by reinvesting profits through a number of channels. TS Bank is dedicated to community prosperity and reinvests 10% of their net income back to the community through outreach, event sponsorships, giving and employee volunteerism.

Community Outreach

By supporting a number of community initiatives, we strive to make an impact.

TS Institute

The TS Institute, a non-profit established in 2009 by the TS Banking Group, is an organization committed to creating a more financial-savvy future generation through a K-12 financial literacy program in each school in the bank's market area. The TS Banking Group donated $250,000 to jump-start this initiative, and three years later made a $1,000,000 commitment to help expand the program to other schools. To date the TS Institute has impacted 5,000 students within the TS Bank's market area in Southwest Iowa, and has received a grant from the Iowa Division of Banking to help expand the programming to other banks within the state. For more information visit their website or find them on Facebook or Twitter.

The Vision Treynor Gift

In June, 2010 the TS Banking Group proudly announced a $500,000 lead-off gift to the Vision Treynor Group for development of a Youth Sports Complex, an Aquatic Center and a Fitness Facility. According to the community survey results led by the Vision Treynor Group this development will help enrich the experience of youth for the community of Treynor and surround areas.

TS Promise

TS Promise is a three-day event held in October, which TS Bank sponsors in an effort to give back to the community. Each year, TS Bank donates $10,000 toward providing a motivational speaker to nine local high school and middle school assemblies and an evening faith-based Youth Rally.

Employee Volunteerism

Our Team

At TS Bank, we think it's important to get your hands dirty and our employees agree, which is why over 85% of TS Banking Group's employees volunteer within their community! Two of the ways our employees volunteer are TeamMates and Children's Square.


TeamMates is a volunteer based program designed to provide support and encouragement to elementary through high school aged youth by instilling a sense of hope, purpose and vision. TS Bank joined the TeamMates Mentoring Program in 2011 and has encouraged it's employees to take part in this unique opportunity. TS Bank currently has eleven employees mentoring and anticipate greater participation as the program continues to grow.

Children's Square

TS Bank employees have helped the children living at Children's Square celebrate Christmas for the last two years. TS Bank CEO, Mick Guttau, dresses as Santa, and his wife Judy Guttau, Director of Community Reinvestment, dresses as Mrs. Claus to deliver Christmas gifts to the children at Children's Square in Council Bluffs, IA. Each year TS Bank employees and directors purchase gifts for the organization.
