Our Mission

Financial Empowerment

At Fifth Third Bank our purpose is to improve lives and the well-being of our communities. We believe in doing well by doing good and that belief propels our community commitments, including our focus on building financial capacity for students. In 1948, we became the first financial institution in the United States to establish a charitable foundation. Today, we continue to help improve lives and we are a leader in financial education programming in the communities we serve.
