Delaware’s banks demonstrate their commitment to the First State by being good corporate citizens. They do this by investing in the community. Delaware’s banks not only provide monetary support through grants to civic organizations and charities, but bank employees back up those dollars by volunteering their time for those causes. In 2017 banks provided over $17 million to hundreds of non-profit groups and community agencies all across the State. And bank employees contributed over 198,000 hours in service to the community.
