Community Involvement

Some banks are located in the community and others truly are community banks. We take our role as a community bank responsibly and believe that good business comes with being a good and responsible member of the communities we serve. That is why we give of our time and resources to the communities of Bridgeport, Little Italy/University Village and the surrounding Chicago community when and where we can.

Some of our current community involvement projects include:

Food C

Employees and customers are pleased to support Chicago’s largest food bank. The bank organizes food drives throughout the year to help feed Chicago’s less fortunate.


From impoverished Third World countries to communities across America who have been hit by natural disasters, Soles4Souls is a global nonprofit institution dedicated to helping those in need through the necessities of shoes and clothing. Washington Federal is proud to support their efforts.

Toys for tots

We are proud to support the mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program in to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year. The toys are distributed as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community.
