BB&T in the community
BB&T is firmly rooted in the communities we serve. Our connections run deep, and our associates and executive leaders are committed to helping others in meaningful ways. From funding education programs to lending a hand to charitable and faith-based organizations, BB&T is proud to join our friends and neighbors in building stronger and more vital communities.
We have several programs specifically designed to help us meet these goals.
BB&T Lighthouse Project
The Lighthouse Project is an annual, company-wide community service effort that brings together thousands of associates to serve as a beacon for our neighbors in need.
BB&T provides interactive tools and training programs to increase financial education for all ages.
BB&T is dedicated to attracting and retaining diverse clients and associates across our organization—so that we reflect the communities we serve.
We celebrate the American dream of prosperity and success for people of all backgrounds. We seek to assist DACA (Deferred Access for Childhood Arrivals) recipients in every way that we can as they work for their future.
CRA Community Development
BB&T has always been a partner, an advocate and a force for change. Our vision is to enrich our neighborhoods through community development leadership and innovation, while fulfilling the mission of the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA).
