Corporate Social Responsibility Staff


Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) division implements the guiding principles of the MUFG Union Bank, N.A. CSR program. As part of this program, we create partnerships with local communities, volunteers, and bank employees to help meet goals to stabilize or revitalize low- and moderate-income (LMI) communities, promote social equity, and support environmental concerns in the activities and enterprises we support.

Our program is based on the principle of sustainability. We work hard to:
  • Foster economic, social, and environmental sustainability
  • Promote financial prosperity, sociocultural equity, and diversity
  • Conserve natural resources to preserve and improve the environment
As part of the MUFG Union Bank, N.A., Community Service Action Plan, CSR staff members are actively involved in helping to drive credit, capital, and services to LMI communities throughout the bank's marketplace. CSR also manages the bank's charitable contributions program, including grants made through the MUFG Union Bank Foundation, as well as donations and sponsorships made directly by the bank.

Please contact us at CSRGroup@unionbank.com if you have questions relating to the MUFG Union Bank, N.A., CSR program.
