“At Arvest, being good corporate citizens is in our fundamental DNA,” said Mark Larrabee, president and CEO for Arvest Bank in Greater Kansas City. “We believe that the role of a community bank is to create a great place to live, work and play. “Through the Arvest Foundation, we are able to support organizations doing work to empower those in need, thereby improving our community at all levels.”

The primary purpose of the Arvest Foundation is to support local organizations doing outstanding work to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. Through our grant program, the Arvest Foundation helps worthwhile charitable activities in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.
