Our members offer services and educational resources that help empower people and families to improve their financial capability, health and independence.
It is important that residents have access to resources that help lay a solid foundation for banking and financial empowerment. Our coalition is particularly focused on assisting youth, first-time job seekers and families with disabilities to access financial services.

THE BANK ON MOVEMENT
Bank On Rubber City is proud to be part of the national Bank On movement, made up of over 75 similar local coalitions across the country.
The nonprofit Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund (CFE Fund) is the national partner for local Bank On coalitions, supporting local efforts through resources like the Bank On National Account Standards and accompanying certification, grant support to build local coalition capacity, and a robust learning community. The CFE Fund also works to give voice to local coalition experiences by informing both federal regulatory policy and financial institution practices.
