In honor of Giving Tuesday, Chicago-based Byline Bank distributed $30,000 to fund philanthropic initiatives, including a $5,000 donation to three local charities.
The Cook County Health Foundation, The Kendall County Community Food Pantry and The Oak Park-River Forest Community Foundation each received a $5,000 donation from Byline. An additional $15,000 was distributed by Byline Bank branches directly to community nonprofits or in support of charitable activities such as coordinating meals and buying winter coats for those in need.
“We believe that supporting our communities is about fostering an ecosystem where both small businesses and local charities can thrive, creating a ripple effect of hope, goodwill and economic opportunity,” said Megan Biggam, EVP and head of retail banking at Byline.
These donations are part of Byline’s overarching commitment to community enrichment. Byline has also prioritized more than $60 million in community development investments and $70 million in community development loans.
