Founded in 1922 by a local group of Polish-American citizens, Pulaski Bank evolved to assist community members in saving money and purchasing homes. The name "Pulaski" was chosen in honor of General Casimir Pulaski, an Old World nobleman and hero of the American Revolution. As a young man, General Pulaski met American emissary Benjamin Franklin and, after learning of the American colonists' struggle for independence, he proceeded to America, joined Washington's Army and was granted a commission as Brigadier General of Cavalry, the first of such rank in the Continental Army. After a brave defense of Charleston, South Carolina, General Pulaski died with his cavalry in battle at Savannah, Georgia, in 1779.
Pulaski Bank's earliest objectives of helping clients reach financial freedom, homeownership goals, and business-building dreams remain in place today. Our goal is to provide accessible, competitive products to consumers and businesses without losing the heart of community banking. By combining the latest technology with exceptional service, local job opportunities, and other opportunities to draw new businesses to the community, Pulaski Bank ensures a long-term commitment to our local communities.
