Community Service by Fifth Third

Our communities, our future

At Fifth Third Bank, we pride ourselves on our community involvement. In 1948, we became the first financial institution in the United States to establish a charitable foundation. Today, we continue to invest the time, resources, and people to help improve lives in the communities we serve.
