As a community bank, it’s important to us to take care of our neighbors and to make our communities great places to live. We understand the challenges of small-town life and know what a difference generosity can make to our towns — because we live here, too.

Union Bank and the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA)

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) periodically evaluates thousands of banks across the country to determine how well their lending practices contribute to the vibrancy of local communities. Historically, only one in twenty of participating banks earn the coveted “Outstanding” rating which is reserved for banks that most effectively meet the credit needs of their local communities. In its most recent examination by regulatory agencies, Union Bank again received an “outstanding” rating for its compliance with the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA). “Union Bank is proud to have the efforts of its staff recognized by the Outstanding rating.” states David S. Silverman, Union Bank President and CEO. “In today’s challenging economic environment, it has become even more important for banks to fulfill their commitments under the CRA – to invest vital capital to all segments of the communities we serve, including low- and moderate-income areas, and to ensure small businesses receive the funding they need to stay competitive and keep our communities strong. Union Bank is committed to the success of the communities in which we do business, and we are pleased that our efforts to support these communities have been recognized by the FDIC.” This puts Union Bank in the unique position of being one of the top banks in the nation both in terms of financial performance and in meeting the credit and economic development needs of the communities we serve.(Outstanding Rating Press Release, June 13, 2014)

Union Bank donates thousands of dollars to community organizations annually, and its employees volunteer countless hours of their expertise and time. From fundraising for cancer patients to celebrating our hometown teams and organizations, Union Bank is committed to building and maintaining the communities we live in.

We receive hundreds of requests for donations each year. If you are a non-profit located in an area where a Union Bank branch is located, please send your donation request by filling out our Charitable Giving Request Form.

LACiNg Up for CancerThis annual fundraising event donates 100% of funds raised to help cancer patients struggling with financial burdens brought on by their diagnosis. Union Bank participates as a Platinum Sponsor and many of the bank’s employees work hard on their own or as a team to raise sponsorship funds. Union Bank employees proudly raised $9,010 in 2014 to assist cancer patients in Lamoille County.

Save for Success Working to help the community takes a variety of shapes. Save for Success was started by Union Bank in 1995 with the goal of inspiring kids to start a savings habit during elementary school, combined with learning personal financial skills. Union Bank contributes the first $1 to each participating students’ account.
