Union Bank® Serving Communities

Investing in local communities

Community outreach

The Corporate Social Responsibility for the Americas community outreach team leverages the products, services and employee talent of MUFG Union Bank, N.A., with the needs of small businesses and low- and moderate-income communities. This team works collaboratively with nonprofit partners, government agencies, foundations, and other financial institutions to maximize the Bank’s impact in the communities it serves. The community outreach team helps promote community and economic development by:

  • Engaging bank employees in volunteer opportunities that help small businesses and disadvantaged communities
  • Bridging the products, services and expertise of one of the world’s largest and most sophisticated banks with underserved and disadvantaged communities including, but not limited to philanthropy, loans and investments
  • Serving as the conduit for the work and resources of the MUFG Union Bank Foundation
  • We are dedicated to fostering economic sustainability in the communities we serve by promoting employee volunteerism and marrying appropriate and responsive financial products and services with the needs of the communities we are chartered to serve.
