Eight Banks to Receive Community Commitment Awards

The American Bankers Association Foundation has recognized eight banks for their outstanding commitment to their communities. The ABA Community Commitment Awards—to be presented on Oct. 29 during ABA’s Annual Convention in Seattle—are given in seven categories to honor innovative, high-impact bank programs and projects that produce lasting results in the communities they serve. A new category, supporting military families, was added this year. Bank winners and categories were:

  • FNBO, Omaha, Neb., and Wells Fargo, San Francisco, co-winners for affordable housing
  • Midwest BankCentre, St. Louis, for community and economic development
  • Devon Bank, Chicago, for economic inclusion
  • Union Savings Bank, Cincinnati, for financial education
  • IncredibleBank, Wausau, Wis., for protecting older Americans
  • Citi, New York, for supporting military families
  • First Financial Northwest Bank, Renton, Wash., for volunteerism

“Banks of all sizes are stepping up their corporate social responsibility efforts to serve their communities, and this year’s nominations in every category were incredibly impressive,” said ABA President and CEO Rob Nichols. “The programs developed by our Community Commitment Award winners stood out to our judges and really demonstrate how banks are helping communities solve challenging issues.”
