Comerica Bank has been named a 2022 honoree of The Civic 50 by Points of Light, the world's largest organization dedicated to volunteer service, in recognition of its support for local communities.
For 10 years, The Civic 50 has provided a national standard for corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills, and resources to drive social impact in their communities, as well as within their own companies. The Civic 50 honorees are companies with annual U.S. revenues of at least $1 billion that are selected based on four dimensions of their corporate citizenship and social impact programs - investment of resources, integration across business functions, institutionalization through policies and systems and impact measurement.
"Comerica has a long history of taking action to help strengthen our communities and this recognition is a testament to that effort," said Irvin Ashford, Jr., Chief Community Officer. "Comerica and our colleagues continue to share in our mission of supporting the communities we serve, and we look forward to identifying new ways in which we can help make a difference."
Comerica and its nearly 7,500 colleagues across Texas, Michigan, California, Arizona and Florida made a difference supporting communities in multiple ways throughout 2021, which included:
-- Supporting business needs and community service organizations, Comerica and the Comerica Charitable Foundation pledged $16 million in 2021 as part of its ongoing COVID-19 relief efforts. Combined with the 2020 contribution, more than $27 million was provided to help small businesses and community organizations recover from the financial burdens created by the pandemic.
-- Contributing more than 64,000 hours of volunteer time in 2021, equating to more than $1.8 million donated to area nonprofits.
-- Sharing the importance of financial education through 380 small business bootcamps and reaching approximately 50,000 individuals from low- to moderate-income communities through Comerica $ense financial education programs.
The Civic 50 survey is administered by True Impact and consists of quantitative and multiple-choice questions that inform the scoring process. The Civic 50 is the only survey and ranking system that exclusively measures corporate involvement in communities.
