RCB In The Community

At RCB, we love being a part of the communities we serve and are committed to helping them stay financially strong, sustainable and vibrant. It’s a tradition that’s 135 years strong and growing.

Our local commitment starts with the way we do business: giving our customers a voice,  insuring every dime on deposit, and practicing sound lending to keep the bank stable and strong. Then we reinvest in our community through our Charitable Foundation, sponsorships, and local initiatives that enhance quality of life for all of us.

The Reading Cooperative Charitable Foundation

Each year, our Foundation supports dozens of local organizations, voted on by you, our customers. In the past, funding has supported everything from scholarships to local hospitals to environmental causes
