A core element of the SunTrust purpose involves actively supporting financial well-being and supporting local non-profit organizations. One way we do this is through our Shine On Volunteerism program, which empowers and inspires teammates to give back to our communities.
Through a dedicated website and paid time off to volunteer, we identify and share hundreds of opportunities for teammates to participate in local volunteer opportunities that promote financial well-being in our communities.
Since the launch of the program in 2010, SunTrust teammates have dedicated more than 500,000 hours, donated millions of dollars, taught hundreds of financial education courses to children of all ages, hammered countless nails and performed a variety of services to benefit our communities.
Shine On Volunteerism is just another example of how our teammates bring our purpose of Lighting the Way to Financial Well-Being to life.
