At Civista Bank, we're deeply committed to the idea that equipping our communities with the right financial knowledge isn't just a part of what we do—it's at the very heart of our mission. We're dedicated to helping community members become confident and adept at handling the twists and turns of the financial world. Civista's financial literacy initiatives include various programs working together to broaden financial understanding across the communities we serve.

DEI & Financial Literacy

Civista's DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) Council is at the forefront of these efforts, actively working to bridge the gaps created by socioeconomic disparities. The council equips its members with resources and enhances their financial literacy skills so they can provide financial literacy workshops for all age groups, which are offered through schools and community organizations.

The Civista Learning Vault and More

Beyond our workshops, Civista proudly offers the Civista Learning Vault, our online learning platform filled with resources aimed at enhancing financial wellness. The Civista Learning Vault offers quick and accessible online learning modules that are free for both adults and students. Our adult program covers topics for all of life's stages – from financing college to saving for retirement and more, while our youth program is geared toward students in 7th-12th grade wishing to learn about budgeting, saving, and investing. Our efforts also extend through proactive engagement on social media and other bank media channels to spread financial knowledge amongst our communities and customers, making it easy for everyone to access and benefit from these resources.

Civista@Work Program

Building on our commitment to financial literacy, Civista Bank offers Civista@Work, a program specifically tailored to collaborate with local employers. This initiative brings exclusive financial perks directly to participating organizations' employees and offers financial education workshops and resources. These are specifically designed to support employees, allowing them to navigate their personal and professional financial lives confidently.

By integrating financial literacy into the workplace, Civista@Work's financial literacy resources can help mitigate employee financial stress—a known factor that can significantly affect job performance and overall workplace morale. Enhancing financial literacy empowers employees to manage their finances more effectively, leading to a more focused, productive, and financially well workforce. By partnering with employers, Civista aims to foster financial wellness within the workforce that propels our communities forward.

As we continue to expand and evolve our financial literacy programs, we remain dedicated to uplifting our communities, knowing that it's through initiatives like these that we can make a significant impact. It's not just about banking; it's about building a stronger community together.
