At Santander, we believe that supporting higher education is the best way to contribute to the economic & social development of the communities we serve.
"It's inspiring to be part of an organization that not only believes in giving back, but encourages me to get involved with the causes that move me."
– Osman Rana, Santander Employee
The world's a better place when we all make an effort to do the little things that drive real change. At Santander Bank, we believe your bank should be part of this effort. This conviction extends to our colleagues, whom we empower to "walk the walk" through our many corporate programs that encourage community service, charitable giving, and volunteering. The result? Thousands of our hours spent every year helping our neighbors, fellow citizens and communities.

The Santander Bank, N.A. Charitable Contributions Program was established to provide funding support to worthwhile not-for-profit organizations in the Santander Bank market area that focus on civic, community and public affairs, health and human services, education and other organizations as the Foundation deems appropriate.
Santander Bank has developed an Inclusive Communities plan which sets a goal of $11 billion in loans, investments and charitable contributions over a five-year period. The plan outlines Santander’s commitment to communities across its eight-state northeastern U.S. footprint for 2017 through 2021. During this time Santander will increase its Community Reinvestment Act activity by 50 percent and triple its investment in charitable grants.
