A Day of unity and giving: Volunteers make a difference for Foster Care Support

The Atlanta Asian Heritage BRG board members, employees and their families came together in August to show their solidarity and compassion in action at the Foster Care Support Foundation in Roswell, GA. This organization touts an illustrious history that spans more than two decades – a testament to its unwavering dedication to fostering the well-being of foster and relative care families across Georgia. They serve the Georgia Division of Family & Children Services-managed foster homes and private agency care, as well as partnering with other organizations to broaden impact.

Prior to the event, U.S. Bank and Elavon volunteers pitched in by donating clothes and funds collected from a lemonade stand organized by employees’ children. During the event, volunteers rolled up their sleeves to reorganize the foundation's space to make it easier for those seeking assistance to find clothing and essentials. Even the youngest volunteers played an integral role, by aiding in packing clothing, toys, and repairing bicycles—a transformative endeavor that holds significant value for families with foster children. Beyond clothing provisions, the foundation extends its impact by providing vital infant equipment and toys, contributing profoundly to the lives of the children it serves.

This collective volunteering effort showcases the incredible potential of a community coming together for a shared purpose. It's not just about the foundation's commitment to its mission—it shows the enduring power of people's compassion and the tangible change they can create when they work together. We continually strive to support the communities where we live, work and play. Through our Community Possible giving platform, we invest our time, resources, and passion in economic development by supporting efforts to create stable jobs, better homes and vibrant communities.

At work

Building and promoting a diverse and inclusive workplace helps us identify the best talent to meet the changing needs of the people we reach.

In the community

We support causes that strengthen the communities in which we live, work and play by investing in the future while being a socially responsible corporate citizen.



In business

Diversity is a business imperative, and we believe the economy is stronger because of the rich differences and shared experiences of the customers we serve.

Year Up interns attend lunch with Greg Cunningham and Tim Welsh to
celebrate 10 years of partnership with U.S. Bank and Elavon

In September, current Year Up interns joined U.S. Bank Chief Diversity Officer, Greg Cunningham, and Vice Chair, Consumer and Business Banking, Tim Welsh, to share their “why” impact stories with our leaders and hear firsthand the work that U.S. Bank/Elavon is doing to be an advocate for their future careers and community. “Each of these future leaders has a story as to why they are participating in the internship program but what struck me was that each of them had so much perseverance, resilience and outstanding work ethic” said Tim Welsh.

This event was held as part of a larger celebration of the 10-year anniversary of partnership* between Year Up, U.S. Bank and Elavon. Over the past decade, we have worked together to provide a 100% tuition-free job training and internship programs for young adults in the Greater Atlanta area. Since 2012, we have hosted 144 interns and hired 51 of them to full time employment, in roles like IT desktop support technician, quality assurance analyst, sales support representative, scrum master, and project manager.

“The Year Up students we met with were so impressive. Each of these young adults is working hard to pursue their career dreams and I’m so grateful U.S. Bank and Elavon have been able to support them along the way” said Greg Cunningham.
