ABA Showcases Corporate Social Responsibility at Banks
THE ABA FOUNDATION HAS ANNOUNCED the
launch of a new interactive map—“Banks in their Communities”—that showcases corporate social responsibility programs from banks across the country. The announcement
was made at the recent White House Conference on Aging.
The map—featuring profiles from ABA’s Community
Commitment Awards submissions—allows users to search
and view bank programs in six categories, including:
m;Community and economic development.
m;Nontraditional borrower and underbanked.
m;Protecting older Americans.
“Banks are constantly finding innovative and impact-
ful ways to connect with the communities they serve,”
says Corey Carlisle, ABA senior vice president, bank com-
munity engagement. “This map was designed not only to
acknowledge the great work banks have done, but to act as
a resource for those looking to do more and to alert con-
sumers of the programs available to them.”
Users will be able to search for programs by state, cat-
egory, bank asset size and keyword. The map will identify
any program summaries submitted since the CCA’s incep-
tion in 2012 that match the user’s search criteria. To view
