Building stronger communities—together

We partner with clients and neighbors to impact our communities in meaningful ways.

The best investment we can make

The work we do in our local communities is steadfast and strong. We're celebrating the 10th anniversary of the BB&T Lighthouse Project by showcasing our associates’ commitment to serving our local communities.

[MUSIC PLAYING] There is a place where everyone is a member of the board, and shareholders are known for sharing, where coins don't make change, people do. There is a place where the mighty triumph over the mighty dollar, where wealth is measured by the number of lives touched, and the size of a check is powerless against the size of a heart. Out here, in this place we call home, paying it back doesn't come in the form of an IOU. It comes from asking, what can I do.


BB&T in the community

From funding education programs to lending a hand to charitable and faith-based organizations, BB&T is proud to join our friends and neighbors in building stronger and more vital communities. Here are a few of our programs that were specifically designed to help us meet these goals.
