Helping Hand: Citizens Bank Announces $225,000 in Contributions to Area Non-Profits

Citizens Bank announces $225,000 in contributions to area non profits.

West End Neighborhood House was one of 11 nonprofit organizations selected for a contribution by Citizens Bank as part of its ongoing commitment to give consumers the confidence and tools they need to be fiscally healthy. Citizens Bank made more than $225,000 in contributions in its Citizens Helping Citizens Manage Money financial literacy initiative.

Funds received by West End Neighborhood House will support the $tand By Me program, enabling individuals to achieve economic advancement and stability.

Nonprofit organizations from across the bank’s 11-state footprint were chosen in a competitive application process based on their track record of success providing financial education programs, clear and measurable goals for the program, and the ability to incorporate sustainability in their program plans.

Leveraging the financial expertise of its bankers and its partnerships with local nonprofits focused on financial education, the Citizens Helping Citizens Manage Money program this year provides $1.4 million in donations to 80 nonprofits and volunteer outreach by more than 400 trained Citizens colleagues.

“We are helping our customers bank better by improving their financial literacy. Learning how to manage money is the first step individuals can take in achieving their financial goals,” said Daniel K. Fitzpatrick, President, Citizens Bank, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.
