Huntington Impact Investment Philanthropy Program


Huntington has over a 150-year history of strong community involvement and supportive civic leadership. We believe that developing relationships and investing in local nonprofit/charitable organizations builds healthy and vibrant communities. Consistent with our purpose, we support charitable programs and initiatives that seek to improve self-sufficiency and quality of life as well as advance social and economic equality in the communities served by Huntington.

Giving Guidelines

Programmatic support may be provided to organizations with the appropriate Internal Revenue Service tax-exempt designation (501c3 or 170c1) serving communities located within Huntington’s footprint. Huntington focuses on the critical areas of impact illustrated below. Additionally, Huntington is committed to supporting racial and social equity programs with a demonstrated commitment to equitable actions that contribute to fairness, justice, and equality for all people. Requests for funding which fall outside the focus areas will be considered when Huntington’s local executives identify alignment with community needs.
