Mandtbank (or M&T Bank) is a different kind of company, offering a different kind of banking experience. When you were a small child, didn’t your parents tell you to always be the best you can be? This simple piece of advice, often given to children, is sometimes forgotten by adults. Few of us truly strive to be the best we can be. When adults enter business, these words of wisdom are nearly always lost. A business may strive to make the best profit, but that is about it – especially when it is a financial institution. Mandtbank is different.
The corporate vision of this bank is not growth, expansion or profit. It is not a complex list of goals in the business world. You will find this corporate vision on their website in one short paragraph which simply states that they strive to be the best bank for customers, and the best employer for their employees. That is what’s different about Mandtbank.
This is not just another corporate giant out to stick their hands in your pocket. This is a community bank, with the interests of people – customers, employees, and community members – in
mind. The M&T Charitable Foundation – founded by Mandtbank – contributed over 15 million dollars to thousands of charities in 2010 alone. They have earned the highest Community Reinvestment Act rating since 1982. Besides the recorded financial investments in the community, they have made a significant investment of effort in protecting our environment. The impressive green record of Mandtbank includes several recycling and waste cutting programs resulting in thousands of trees saved each year, and a continuing reduction of carbon footprint.
Never think the heart of Mandtbank exists only on the corporate level. After all, they are all about people – and the people employed by this company have shown their hearts in over 300,000 cumulative hours of community service. Who wouldn’t sleep better knowing their money is in the hands of Mandtbank?
