Committed to Community
We’re not “committed to community” in words alone. We let our actions speak for themselves.
Deeply Rooted in the Chicago Community
Republic Bank of Chicago has been deeply rooted in the community since we opened our first branch on Chicago’s southwest side in 1964. And we’ve never lost that focus. We love being local! We work hard in our communities every day to serve businesses and individuals. We’re proud to support a number of worthy causes so that our neighborhoods—and Chicago’s spirit of ingenuity—continue to thrive.
You might find our banking professionals explaining the basics of saving and spending to Kindergarten classes for Career Day. We also ring bells for Salvation Army donations during the holidays. We host supply drives to send to our brave service men and women overseas. We commit hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in donations and sponsorships to reinvest in our communities.
We are proud to partner with some outstanding organizations who share our values and have the same desire to help those who live in the communities we serve. Below is a brief list of some organizations that may be able to provide helpful services to you:
