WHY THEY GIVE
Serving local communities is at the core of Hancock Whitney’s dedication to philanthropy and volunteerism. As a hometown financial institution, Hancock Whitney team members live and work in our area so the partnerships they create with local communities and non-profits generates opportunities for people down to the neighborhood level.

METHODS
In 2020, Hancock Whitney invested more than $6.5 million in philanthropic donations to empower communities across the Gulf South. Their team members performed thousands of hours of community service with a focus on expanding financial education in local neighborhoods. Across the greater New Orleans region, they support hundreds of non-profits working to make our city a better place. When the pandemic hit, Hancock Whitney quadrupled efforts to ensure people had access to food through Second Harvest Food Bank and another dozen food banks in the region. In addition, they provided funding for health care for low-to-moderate income individuals through organizations like St. Thomas Community Health Center and Ascension DePaul Services, the organization formerly known as Daughters of Charity.
