Proudly supporting the communities we serve

Woodforest National Bank is committed to giving back to the communities it serves. Employees of the bank make good on that commitment by volunteering their time, organizing fundraisers, and giving to charitable organizations.

In 2005, Woodforest formed the Woodforest Charitable Foundation as an extension to that long term commitment. Robert Marling, CEO of Woodforest National Bank and President of the Woodforest Charitable Foundation, said the organization was developed as a means for the bank to support local charitable organizations for years to come. The Foundation, he said, will compliment the charitable spirit of Woodforest National Bank.

The success of the Foundation counts on the support of the employees, board members, customers, community members, investors and all those who contribute to the bank's success. "We have always been a strong supporter of our community and giving back," he said. "The Foundation was created to continue doing the same good works Woodforest National Bank has done in contributing to worthy causes throughout our community for 25 years. By creating the Foundation we have a long-lasting vehicle that will outlast all of us and will continue to focus on the specific needs of our community.”

Evidence of the bank’s community commitment can be found in branches across the 17 states it serves. Employees can be found volunteering time at food banks, conducting fundraising events in branches, and participating in and sponsoring fundraisers in the community.
