Truist Cares

Building a recovery takes a village.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, millions of everyday heroes sprang into action to keep our world spinning. We were inspired. And we joined the effort.

Since March, we’ve donated $50 million to help our communities through Truist Cares.

Together, we’re surviving. Staying. Strengthening.

Nonprofits are saving the day.

Nonprofit organizations are vital resources in communities where we all work and live. And when they thrive, we all benefit. We celebrate the resilience and success of Brighton, LiftFund, LISC, Northern Virginia Family Services, Phoebe Putney Health System, and Sentara Healthcare, and all the incredible organizations like them across the country.

Helping others, helping you

Our $50 million was distributed to organizations dedicated to expanding, rebuilding, and creating thriving communities in five categories—Connect, Small Business, Senior, Workforce, and Youth.

Connect: Providing broadband services to communities in need or providing technology devices to support small and medium sized nonprofits.

Small Business: Awarding grants for micro and small businesses in rural and urban communities throughout our footprint.

Senior: Partnering with organizations that provide food services, medical supplies, and other critical services to our elderly neighbors.

Workforce: Supporting emergency relief for workers that were laid-off or had significantly reduced hours because of COVID-19.

Youth: Partnering with nonprofits to ensure low-income students have access to meals, devices for digital learning, and quality childcare for essential workers.

Macro-sized support for microbusinesses

The COVID-19 pandemic caused nearly half of microbusinesses (20 employees or less) to close, and disproportionately impacted businesses owned by women, immigrants, and people of color. So we provided nearly $2 million in grants to over 200 small businesses in our footprint—80% of which are minority-owned.
