Charitable Giving

We place a high priority on providing financial assistance as well as volunteer support to community-based organizations that improve the quality of life where our clients and employees live, work and raise their families. 

In the communities where we operate, our funding and volunteer activities support programs in four specific areas of interest: 

  • Youth & Education: Ensures children are safe, healthy and enter school ready to learn while engaging school-aged children to be confident, responsible and happy.
  • Family & Health: Provides food to eat, a roof overhead, access to health care and safe, healthy productive lives.
  • Community Arts: Offers cultural enrichment and artistic education
  • Economic Development: Supports community and civic activities as well as local economic development.

*To be eligible for funding, applicants must be nonprofit, tax-exempt, 501(c)3 organizations.


Community Giving Guidelines

Volunteers in our Communities

To Cross Keys Bank, the term “corporate giving” means more than just writing a check. It means empowering and encouraging bank employees to make a personal difference in their community. To this end, Cross Keys employees regularly volunteer their time, energy and expertise to qualified local civic and social service organizations.
