Working together with our clients and communities goes far beyond being your bank. Along with our Philanthropy and Community Investment programs, our active Webster colleagues share their time and skills across the footprint.
Regional and local initiatives
We work to build self-reliant and healthy communities. We do this through a variety of regional and local initiatives along with key partnerships, giving Webster colleagues the opportunities to make an impact.
With a focus on financial empowerment and entrepreneurship, Junior Achievement (JA) delivers K-12 programs fostering work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills that build the foundation for thousands of kids to succeed. Over the years, our work with our JA partners has doubled including adding partnerships with new chapters. Plus, when JA turned 100 in 2019, Webster Bank was proud to increase funding and volunteer involvement throughout New England.
We are proud of our long-standing partnership with United Way and strongly believe in their mission to ensure people have access to a broad safety net of human services. As our premier charity, we have raised more than $20 million over two decades through employee pledging, fundraising and corporate donations. Colleagues serve in leadership positions and on a variety of committees bringing skill and expertise to United Way chapters across the franchise.
