Committed to Our Communities

At UBSI, we're committed to making a positive impact in our communities by encouraging our employees to volunteer and fundraise for various causes.  As we expand, so does our ability to shape a better future to build brighter communities.


In 2023, we were able to help 730 QUALIFIED HOMEBUYERS achieve their dream of homeownership through a collective $6.8 MILLION OF DOWN PAYMENT and CLOSING COST ASSISTANCE provided by United.

United understands that expanding homeownership for diverse communities is essential to closing the racial wealth gap. In 2023, United team members conducted over 100 mortgage-related outreach activities, such as first-time homebuyer workshops to diverse communities. We are committed to providing products, tools, and services to help families achieve this milestone.

We are continuously working to enhance risk management strategies, measurement tools, and strategic opportunities related to climate.  In 2023, this resulted in over:


420,000 POUNDS

We are working to identify opportunities with dual benefits of cost savings and climate stewardship. In 2023, the Bank documented over $1.1 million of facility upgrades that are expected to reduce energy or water use.
