At Truist, we believe in giving back to the communities who have been so good to us. Through our corporate citizenship, Community Benefits Plan, community development efforts, and the Truist Foundation, we’re creating meaningful change on a whole new scale.
Advancing Corporate Social Responsibility
At Truist, our environmental, social, and corporate governance contributions are more than a responsibility—they’re an opportunity to fulfill our purpose to inspire and build better lives and communities. By doing our part as a corporate citizen to help build a better quality of life for the communities in which we live and work, we hope to inspire others to do the same and create a ripple effect of meaningful change.
Through the Truist Community Benefits Plan, we’re elevating low- and moderate-income (LMI) and minority borrowers and their communities. From 2020 to 2022, we'll lend or invest $60 billion to LMI borrowers and in LMI communities. This will include support for affordable housing, nonprofits and small business growth in LMI geographies.
Plus, we’re fulfilling financial commitments of more than $117.4 million annually through 2021 for SunTrust’s and BB&T’s heritage home communities—Atlanta and the Piedmont Triad in North Carolina.

Building better lives through the Truist Foundation
All people and communities should have an equal opportunity to thrive. The Truist Foundation partners with organizations that share our purpose to inspire and build better lives and communities. We achieve this by investing in initiatives, projects and programs focused on leadership development, economic mobility, thriving communities and educational equity.
Investing in the communities where we live and work
Our communities are our best investment. That’s why we’re committed to our work through the Community Reinvestment Act. From funding programs that support LMI individuals and communities to building the capacity of charitable and nonprofit organizations, we’re improving lives across the country.
How we meet community needs
