For Valley Bank, a growing regional bank with more than 200 branches across New Jersey, New York, Florida, and Alabama, helping communities grow and prosper is at the heart of its corporate citizenship philosophy. Valley invested more than $1 billion in community-building programs in 2018, ranging from loans and mortgages to investments to build vital connections to promote affordable housing, drive economic growth, facilitate financial education and build workforce partnerships.
“We know that a thriving community is built on people who have both the passion and skills to help it grow and prosper,” said Bernadette Mueller, EVP of Corporate Social Responsibility, Valley Bank. “That’s why Valley works in multiple ways to fund programs that help our local communities flourish. Facilitating financial health and educating our youth to build a more impactful workforce have long been one of our key charitable giving pillars.”
