United Bank matches $25K donation for Giving Tuesday
PARKERSBURG — United Bank has matched $25,000 to Philanthropy West Virginia’s Giving Tuesday for the COVID-19 response.
As a special philanthropic response to COVID-19 needs, United Bank is collaborating with fellow Philanthropy West Virginia members to increase support of the nonprofits on the frontlines serving state citizens and communities during the pandemic.
Philanthropy West Virginia was approached by a major corporation in creating a statewide giving challenge fund to encourage private donors to match their grant for use in our state and local pandemic response and recovery efforts.
United Bank is one of the initial matching fund sponsors for the Take 5 to Give 5 campaign that has pledged to match funds up to 50 cents for every $1 donated to the participating relief funds up to $150,000. Philanthropy West Virginia’s goal is to reach $250,000 total across the state through 15 relief funds managed by participating community foundations and United Ways.
“At United, excellence in service means more than providing customers with banking solutions; it means using our skills and networks to build vibrant communities throughout our footprint,” said United Bank West Virginia Regional President D.F. Mock. “We are proud to participate in this campaign to help our state’s nonprofit organizations that are serving West Virginia citizens and communities during this difficult time.” United’s donation will benefit numerous nonprofit organizations serving our state.

It has assets of approximately $25 billion and 211 full-service offices and 19 loan origination offices in West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina and Washington, D.C.
