For Good Fund


The Taylor Bank For Good Fund was established in 2023, following the launch of our For Good Checking account, to provide further support to organizations helping to address needs in our communities in Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia. Grantmaking through the For Good Fund is in addition to Taylor Bank's Corporate Sponsorship Program. A portion of all For Good Checking Debit Card transactions are included in the Bank's contributions to the Fund.
