Committed to Community

Republic Bank of Chicago has been deeply rooted in the community since we opened our first branch on Chicago’s southwest side in 1964. And we’ve never lost that focus. We love being local!  We work hard in our communities every day to serve businesses and individuals. We’re proud to support a number of worthy causes so that our neighborhoods—and Chicago’s spirit of ingenuity—continue to thrive.

You might find our banking professionals explaining the basics of saving and spending to Kindergarten classes for Career Day. We also ring bells for Salvation Army donations during the holidays. We host supply drives to send to our brave service men and women overseas. We commit hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in donations and sponsorships to reinvest in our communities.

Our local partners include neighborhood schools and a host of organizations, including:
