Our Legacy is WHO WE ARE –

Since opening our doors on Sweet Auburn Avenue in 1921, to our presence as part of the downtown landscape, Citizens Trust Bank has become a beacon of strength in the communities we serve.

Our rich history and legacy have given us the foundation and motivation to produce value while remaining firmly rooted and accessible.


Each year, several community organizations request sponsorship support in the form of events, including dinners, runs/walks, financial literacy/ empowerment and/or advertisements in programs.  Although careful consideration is given to all requests, please be advised that our funds are limited, and we regret that we are unable to fulfill every request. 

Sponsorships must align with our mission, vision, values, and strategic initiatives. All sponsorships should relate to Community well-being, Business Development, Education, and youth and/or Financial Empowerment in our community. We ask that community organizations submit written, formal requests a minimum of 12 weeks** prior to the date of the event.
