As a community bank, UB is mission-driven to give back to our communities through volunteerism and sponsorships. What really sets us apart, however, is that we are a designated Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) which gives us access to federal funding programs designed to build stronger communities. And we are equally mission-driven to leverage these funds for economic development and improvement in all the communities we serve. This isn’t a typical business model: growth through good.
But it works for us.
