Webster Bank’s Employee Campaign for United Way Sets Record

(2/6/12) — Webster Bank believes in giving back to the communities it serves. This is evidenced by its recent Employee Community Campaign for United Way, raising a record-setting $1.2 million.

Employee pledges made up a significant portion of the results. The campaign also consisted of several one-time fundraisers over the course of the year. The total amount raised makes Webster Bank one of Connecticut’s largest contributors to the United Way.

"Our company has been an active United Way campaign participant since my father founded the bank in 1935. I’m so pleased that Webster employees contribute in this way, responding to the ever-changing needs of our communities, especially during what has been a challenging economic time," said Jim Smith, Chairman and CEO of Webster Bank.

The money raised goes to more than 40 United Way chapters and more than 100 United Way partner agencies across Webster’s growing footprint in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Westchester County, N.Y. Congratulations Webster Bank!

Webster Bank employees were recognized for their outstanding contributions at the annual ‘Thank You’ event.
