The best way to ensure the long-term health of our bank is to help ensure the health of the communities we serve. That means more than taking deposits, providing loans, or earning the right to the next transaction. It also means serving with our time, talent, and resources.
At Synovus, we express our commitment to communities through Here Matters, our community outreach program. Here Matters builds on a century-plus legacy of service to local communities as the bank of here, focusing Synovus’ volunteer and financial contributions in three areas: economic stability and prosperity, social and human advocacy, and environmental protection and improvement.
Synovus team members demonstrate that Here Matters through footprint-wide projects in the spring and fall — and through rapid response to event-driven needs.
Each year, Synovus is proud to invest millions of dollars in communities as we encourage purposeful and meaningful change. As part of these efforts, in April 2023, we donated $2 million to more than 300 nonprofits and organizations in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina and Tennessee. Through our Corporate Donations Program, we’re building on the millions of dollars we donate annually to address critical needs in the communities we serve. Alongside our partners, we're honored to strengthen our communities and help individuals reach their full potential.
