Community Development Tours

Since 2013, the ABA Foundation has been taking bankers on Community Development Tours around the nation.

A core element of ABA’s Annual Convention, each tour highlights successful projects that stem from partnerships between banks of all sizes, non-profit organizations and corporations to show how banks are working to stimulate local economies. Tour participants observe first-hand the ways in which banks positively affect communities as they help strengthen businesses, empower people and ultimately help places thrive. Please join your fellow bankers on an upcoming tour—sponsored by the Federal Home Loan Banks—to witness how banks are reviving neighborhoods across America.

2018 New York City

During the 2018 ABA Annual Convention, the ABA Foundation hosted a virtual tour, showcasing how banks are leading community revitalization efforts in New York City. The session featured a panel of community visionaries —including Cyndi Lauper, Grammy-, Emmy- and Tony Award-winning artist; co-founder of True Colors Fund as well as Brenda Rosen, the President and CEO of Breaking Ground. The tour highlighted how collaborations between banks and community organizations are tackling the issue of homelessness and transforming the lives of people in and around New York City.
