Investments in Our Communities
In the spirit of being good corporate citizens, many companies contribute to communities through charitable giving. Oftentimes, that takes the form of writing a check. We believe in making meaningful financial contributions, but we also believe in showing up. We get our hands dirty. We show up at project sites. We create relationships.
In 2022 we volunteered more that 11,000 hours, focused on building homes, distributing and packaging food, teaching financial education, providing resources, and serving on boards and committees. Our employees believe in being a part of their communities and showing up to make a difference.
Guided By Our Community Giving and Investment Principles
To make the greatest impact with every dollar, we align all of our investment decisions to our mission-driven principles.
Improve Financial Confidence in Our Communities
Our mission is to improve the financial lives of our neighbors and their businesses, including supporting organizations focused on financial literacy and education.
Support Inclusive Organizations that Foster Diversity, Diverse Communities and/or Communities in Need
We are better together, and supporting diversity is not only necessary, but critical for the future of our communities.
Direct Gifts to Enrich Business Relationships
We believe that community giving can create mutually beneficial relationships, and we strive to be a financial partner to the community organizations we support.
Empower our Employees to Make a Difference in Our Communities
Our bankers know their communities, and know where we can make an impact. That's why giving decisions are made locally by local advocates.
