BECOME A PARTNER

All are welcome to participate with BOGP. Private and public, for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, educators, leaders and workers are joining over 70 Bank On cities across the country to reduce barriers to banking and increase access to the financial mainstream for low to moderate income individuals. So, what is the commitment for partners?

For Financial Institutions:

  • Educate a least one person in each branch that you identify as a BOGP partner about the purpose of the BOGP initiative.  That person will work with customers that are BOGP referred or indicate that they saw BOGP material and need assistance.
  • Collect aggregate data and report it to BOGP on a monthly basis.
  • Encourage new BOGP customers to participate in classes to become more educated about their finances.
  • Display, if permitted, a Bank On Greater Pittsburgh foam core poster in each participating branch.

For Community Partners:

  • Educate consumers on the importance of using traditional financial services.
  • Refer unbanked individuals to participating financial institutions.
  • Collect aggregate data and report it to BOGP on a monthly basis.
  • Partner with BOGP to identify/provide supports to overcome barriers to individuals. i.e. host financial education classes in your community and offer childcare.
  • It is important to the economic vitality of this region that people are able to open bank accounts and have traditional financial services.  The cost, and lack of economic freedom, for those who have to use payday lending, check cashing services, or money orders for their transactions is staggering and holds people back. Through Bank On, with the leadership of the Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh, the United Way of Allegheny County, and our banking partners, we are ensuring that our region and all of its residents can continue to move forward and benefit from our economy
