In The Community
A Strong Legacy of Support
For more than 170 years, People’s United Bank has been a proud and active member of the communities where we live and work, and we remain steadfast in continuing our legacy of supporting the needs of the communities we serve.
We believe a community's health and strength is achieved through collaborative efforts, and by working hand-in-hand with our community partners, we can have an important impact on local economic growth and development, and helping our communities thrive.
How We Give Back
At People's United, giving back to our communities is deeply rooted in our culture, and has been for more than 175 years. In 2017, through our two foundations, we awarded more than $3.5 million in grants to more than 500 non-profit organizations throughout our footprint. In addition to the Foundations' grants, People's United Bank donations, sponsorships and employee contributions of more than $4.5 million, generated a collective impact of nearly $8 million.
We look forward to expanding our partnerships and continuing our long-standing culture of helping to make our communities a stronger, healthier and happier place to live and work. Read more about our commitment and collective impact in the 2017 Community Impact Report.
