As the President & CEO of the largest African- and Caribbean-American managed bank in the United States (founded in 1948 during the civil rights movement), we understand firsthand the importance of listening to voices in the community and why conversations must take place to foster respect for all people.
The Carver team remains committed to doing our part to advocate for equality and to lead with service and dignity in the neighborhoods we serve.
We remain committed to serving our communities and continue to focus on solutions to support your banking needs. Carver has taken proactive steps to ensure that you have access and convenience. This includes:
• 55,000 surcharge-free ATMs through the Allpoint Network
• Online account opening, now available in eight states, including New Jersey
• Seven full-service branches in Harlem, Brooklyn, and Queens with 24/7 ATMs
Our commitment to small business entrepreneurship remains firm, as evidenced by our recent participation in the Paycheck Protection Program. This program is available through the Small Business Administration and federal stimulus initiatives. We have contributed to the preservation of more than 3,300 jobs and provided $32MM in access to capital for small businesses in the communities we serve during COVID-19.
To our customers, community partners, and colleagues, please remain safe and healthy as we strive to get through these challenging times together. We remain here for you!
