Charitable giving

Our unified giving and engagement strategy, Community Possible, focuses on closing the gaps between people and possibility in the areas of work, home and play.

At U.S. Bank, we invest in the local needs of our communities through the U.S. Bank Foundation, corporate contributions, employee matching gifts and volunteerism. In 2022, the U.S. Bank Foundation provided $32 million in grants, gifts and other contributions.

Corporate donations and sponsorships

Nonprofit donations and sponsorship are an integral part of our company’s philanthropic initiatives. In 2022, U.S. Bank contributed more than $32 million in corporate contributions and nonprofit sponsorships.

Employee community engagement

We believe every employee should have the opportunity to give back to their community in a way that is meaningful to them.

Volunteerism

Through the U.S. Bank volunteer program, our nearly 77,000 employees are encouraged to contribute to causes that matter to them. In 2022, employees shared their skills, knowledge and time with our communities by volunteering 311,000 hours with nonprofit organizations. To encourage volunteering, U.S. Bank provides regular opportunities for involvement and 16 hours of paid volunteer time for eligible employees.

Employee matching gifts

The U.S. Bank Foundation matches employee charitable contributions, from $50 to $1,000 per year ($3,000 per year for employees that serve on nonprofit boards). Qualifying contributions include cash and stock to nonprofit organizations or higher education institutions.

Dollars for Doing program

The Dollars for Doing program supports employee community work with a monetary donation to the nonprofits where they volunteer. The program matches employee volunteer time at $5 per hour, up to 40 hours per year.

Employee giving and engagement campaigns

Each year, we run three company-wide campaigns to give employees additional opportunities to give back to their communities and to each other.

  • Employee giving campaign: This campaign encourages employees to make charitable donations to a cause aligned with their passions.
  • Employee assistance fund: This primarily employee-funded program provides one-time grants to help employees facing unexpected hardships, as well as emergency grants to those who were displaced from their homes due to natural disasters or other catastrophes.
  • #GiveTime Campaign: We participate in the international movement called #GivingTuesday, a day focused on the spirit of giving. Our #GiveTime campaign encourages employees and customers alike to volunteer time and share their experiences on social media, encouraging others in turn to give back in their communities.

Our business resource groups provide another avenue for employees to engage with the community and grow professionally.
