United Community Bank Foundation

We're not just a bank; we’re United for our communities.


United Community Bank believes in the power of people coming together for good. We want to inspire, lead, and strengthen our communities. In 2020, we created the United Community Bank Foundation to support our four key areas that align with our employees’ interest, contributions, and volunteer efforts.

Economic Empowerment

We believe a bank’s first responsibility should be to help our neighbors achieve their financial goals.

Artistic Expression

We believe in supporting programs that make a difference in our world. The arts are vital to our lives. They unite communities, improve well-being, and strengthen our economy.

Housing Strategies

We believe every person who dreams of homeownership, should reach that goal. We want to use our tools to help people not just buy a house, but make a home.

Youth Development

We believe every child deserves the best support they can get, as early as they can get it. We support programs that help our children, because when we strengthen young lives, we strengthen our future.

A Letter from the CEO

Whether good is helping our customers, developing our team or supporting our community, we believe in coming together for positive progress. Leaving our world a little better than we found it is what motivates our service and is the idea upon which United Community Bank was built. We look forward to positively impacting our communities for generations to come.
