Citizens in the community

Strengthening the communities where we live and work. That's what Citizens Helping Citizens is all about.

Our Impact

We understand that a good bank is at the heart of a community, and that investing in our communities enriches us all. That's why we partner with local non-profit organizations to build vital connections to help communities prosper.

Our programs assist those in need so they may receive food and clothing, find affordable housing, develop their skills for better jobs, and expand their financial literacy.

How We Help the Community

Corporate Giving - We believe that investing in the communities where we live and work enriches us all. That's why we give to organizations that are making a difference locally by enhancing quality of life and economic vitality in the communities we serve.

Our Colleagues - We support our colleagues who dedicate their time to charitable causes that are meaningful to them. In 2017, our colleagues provided more than 114,000 hours of volunteer service across our communities. To encourage personal giving, we double the charitable contributions of our colleagues to eligible nonprofits.

Contributions and Sponsorships

We define contributions and sponsorships as follows:

  • Contributions are made only to qualified, federal tax-exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations, as defined by the Internal Revenue Service Code. Contributions are restricted to nonprofit organizations serving local residents in areas in which the bank has a branch presence. Unless otherwise noted, charitable contributions generally are for program support. Citizens Bank looks for opportunities where our funding can have a clear, measurable impact on the community.

  • Sponsorships are payments to any for-profit or nonprofit organization for which Citizens will receive promotional, marketing, or entertainment value. Participation as a sponsor of an event or community function is expected to help create a favorable impression for the bank, provide opportunities and visibility for colleagues, create unique experiences for customers, generate new business opportunities, and support the community.
