Caring for the Community

Supporting the communities we serve

Whether we’re planting trees in city parks or donating life-giving blood, we’re eager to roll up our sleeves and make a difference. It’s part of Union Bank’s culture — employees of all levels are empowered to be leaders in philanthropy, inspiring others to consider how any contribution of time, talent, or money can change lives.

What Sets Union Bank Apart

Our people make the difference

We’re a locally owned bank that takes a personal approach to providing a breadth of services with a warm, helpful personality. Major turning points in your life — first car, first job, going to college, getting married, a new home, having children, retirement — are what we love to help you with. At UBT, people don’t have your money — your money has people.
