Valley Bank invested in a number of community building programs in 2018 including Paterson New Jersey Habitat for Humanity, a partnership that spans 25 years. During that time, Valley volunteers have helped build almost 70 homes for Paterson residents.

 For Valley Bank, a growing regional bank with more than 200 branches across New Jersey, New York, Florida, and Alabama, helping communities grow and prosper is at the heart of its corporate citizenship philosophy. Valley invested more than $1 billion in community-building programs in 2018, ranging from loans and mortgages to investments to build vital connections to promote affordable housing, drive economic growth, facilitate financial education and build workforce partnerships. 

“We know that a thriving community is built on people who have both the passion and skills to help it grow and prosper,” said Bernadette Mueller, EVP of Corporate Social Responsibility, Valley Bank.  “That’s why Valley works in multiple ways to fund programs that help our local communities flourish.  Facilitating financial health and educating our youth to build a more impactful workforce have long been one of our key charitable giving pillars.”

Valley’s efforts focus on the impact on the people and communities they serve, including low-to-moderate income persons and geographies, small businesses and community development organizations. The bank collaborates with partners to implement funding programs to facilitate financial health and educate youth. Through scholarships and partnerships with local education and vocational organizations, Valley helps young men and women learn how to take control of their money and acquire the skills they need grow their careers to succeed in the 21st Century.  

The bank also offers special financing for the construction of multifamily and single-family residences, contributes volunteer time and resources to organizations, and participates in programs that promote affordable access to capital for buying homes, among several other services.
