Here are a few highlights of our community support in 2020:
“For Valley, 2020 was a defining moment in our history as we lived up to our purpose and demonstrated the positive impact a bank can have on local communities,” said Bernadette Mueller, executive vice president and chief CSR-CRA Oofficer. “Advocating for our communities and providing them the support they need to thrive is not only our responsibility, it defines our purpose as an organization. The events of the past year; a global pandemic, economic turmoil, political division and social and racial injustice — all challenged us to come together as a society and organization to confront these issues.”
As local communities begin to recover from the effects of a global pandemic, Valley continues to expand its programs, community engagement opportunities and partnerships in 2021. Valley remains committed to its four CSR pillars which include promoting affordable homes, inspiring innovation and entrepreneurship, stimulating economic and community development and living its commitment to impactful local leadership.
