Webster in the community
For more than 80 years, we’ve upheld our promise to not only be there for our customers but the communities where we live and work. Three ways we fulfill this pledge every day are through Corporate Giving, Community Reinvestment (CRA) and Affordable Housing/Community Development.
Through grants and volunteer programs, we support a wide range of non-profit agencies dedicated to building strong and self-reliant communities. We focus on financial literacy, food and shelter, health and human services.
