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:

* Affordable housing.

* Community and economic development.

* Financial education.

* Nontraditional borrower and underbanked.

* Protecting older Americans.

* Volunteerism.

"Banks are constantly finding innovative and impactful ways to connect with the communities they serve," says Corey Carlisle, ABA senior vice president, bank community 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 consumers of the programs available to them."

Users will be able to search for programs by state, category, bank asset size and keyword. The map will identify any program summaries submitted since the CCA's inception in 2012 that match the user's search criteria. To view the map, visit aba.com/communityengagement.

The Community Commitment Awards--the source for the map's bank program profiles--honor innovative, high impact contributions banks make to the customers and communities they serve. The awards are given to banks of all asset sizes and judged by a panel of nationally recognized experts. For more information on the awards, visit aba.com/awards.
