The MutualBank Charitable Foundation is proud to help fund the building of the new Combined Community Services building in Kosciusko County.  

On September 26, 2011, the MutualBank Charitable Foundation announced the awarding of a $10,000 grant to help fund the building of the new Combined Community Services (CCS) facility. The grant will be put toward the construction of the new facility in Warsaw which is scheduled to be completed in June 2012.

Currently CCS has reached over 80% of their total building fund project goal of $1.7 million. This project is under a considerable time pressure as the lease is up on the current building in June 2012 and those who have visited the current facility understand the need for space and storage was needed long ago.

CCS’ motto is “Helping Neighbors, Help Neighbors”. The collaboration of churches, businesses, foundations and individuals enables CCS to help others to achieve a higher quality of life. Or in MutualBank language, to help others live a better life.  MutualBank is proud to partner and support CCS as they look for new ways to remove barriers for low-income residents of Kosciusko County.

The MutualBank Charitable Foundation was created to establish a permanent source of funding for charitable causes in the MutualBank market areas, ensuring the continuation of the MutualBank heritage of supporting the community.

MutualBank, an Indiana-based financial institution, has thirty-two full-service financial centers in Delaware, Elkhart, Grant, Kosciusko, Randolph, St. Joseph and Wabash Counties in Indiana.  MutualBank also has two Wealth Management and Trust offices located in Carmel and Crawfordsville, Indiana and a loan origination office in New Buffalo, Michigan.  MutualBank is a leading residential lender in each of the market areas it serves, and provides a full range of financial services including wealth management and trust services and Internet banking services.  The Company’s stock is traded on the NASDAQ National Market under the symbol “MFSF” and can be found on the internet at www.bankwithmutual.com.

5 Easy Tips to Make Secure Online Purchases

Purchasing holiday gifts online curled up under a blanket and sipping hot chocolate sure beats braving the elements and shopping crowds sometimes.

But with the added convenience of online shopping comes some increased risk of valuable information being stolen, such as credit card numbers or your account log in information for online retailers.

With the holiday season and Cyber Monday upon us, here are 5 easy tips to keep in mind when making any online purchase:

1. Make sure the device you are using is secure.

Use an antivirus program that is set to automatically update. It is also a best practice to install all the latest updates of your operating system as well as updates to all programs you have installed. Apple, Microsoft, and other software providers regularly release updates to protect against all types of security risks.

2. Make sure the wireless network you’re on is secure.

Many public wireless networks offered by businesses, while convenient, are not always the most secure. When making a purchase online, make sure the network you are on is using some sort of security measure that requires you to enter a password to connect. The latest and most secure wireless network encryption is WPA2-CCMP. If the network is not secured, it’s best to purchase online from a secured network.

3. Make sure the retailer’s website is secure.

When shopping online, always look in the address bar for https:// at the beginning of a web address. The “s” used in “https” signifies an encrypted connection from your computer to the company’s webserver. This is used to pass sensitive data between the two devices and prevents criminals from snooping the contents of the information sent (credit card number, SSN, etc.).

4. Use strong and unique passwords.

If you’re like the majority of individuals, you probably have 2-3 passwords that you use for all of your online accounts. While these are easy to remember, this isn’t a best practice. If someone discovers your password(s), they now have access to many of your important accounts. We instead recommend using unique and strong passwords for all your online retailer accounts. Strong passwords generally contain a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and special characters (!, #, *, etc.).

5. Watch for phishing emails.

During the holiday season, the amount of phishing emails sent out increases as many criminals seek to falsely represent retailers. If an email looks suspicious or asks for your account information, do not open it or click on any links inside of it. Additionally, the majority of retailers will never include attachments in their emails but phishing emails sometimes do so don’t open any suspicious attachments.

Stay warm and stay safe this holiday season!
