2024 Honoree

Paducah Bank and Trust
Paducah, Kentucky

Logo of Paducah Bank and TrustFor more than half of its 60 year-history, Market House Theatre (MHT) has benefitted from the support of Paducah Bank and Trust. The bank is a top-tier sponsor of MHT’s programming, and has been instrumental in its capital projects to expand arts and arts opportunities in the area, as well as in the restoration and preservation of historic downtown properties. Paducah Bank was one of two lead investors in MHT’s campaign to create offices, classrooms, scene and costume shops and a studio theatre, and later in adding six more classrooms. Notably, each member of the bank’s Board of Directors also made a significant personal contribution. In 2020, Paducah Bank purchased nearly $150,000 in historical tax credits from the theatre, a major boost to its capital campaign. During the pandemic, the bank helped MHT secure government funding that allowed it to resume operation when many other organizations remained closed.
