Engaging Our Associates

Community Engagement

associate engagment

Regions associates come to work every day motivated not only to meet the needs of our customers, but also to help our neighbors beyond the walls of our bank.

Thousands of associates volunteer their time, talent and finances throughout the year to support their local communities.

  • Teach financial education seminars
  • Tutor and mentor students
  • Build and beautify affordable homes
  • Provide technical expertise to nonprofit organizations

We’re proud to support the needs of our local communities and help all members of those communities achieve their visions of a better life.

What A Difference A Day Makes

Through the What A Difference A Day Makes volunteer program, our associates have the opportunity to take one paid day off each year to make life better by volunteering with community organizations and giving back where we work and live within the communities Regions serves.

Share the Good®

Share the Good® is an annual program organized by Regions associates. Thousands volunteer at the dozens of initiatives happening in the local communities we serve. Read more about how our associates make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.
