CARE Forward with Carter Bank & Trust.

At Carter Bank & Trust, we have a proven tradition of caring for our communities. To continue that tradition, we’re spending 2022 partnering with non-profit organizations in our communities to allocate funds, organize volunteer opportunities, build relationships, and inspire engagement alongside our community. For every new personal or business checking account opened, we’re donating $10 to a local non-profit. To learn more about our most recent donations, click here.
