Bank On Chicago works to connect everyone to safe and appropriate financial products and services.

Join Us

Bank On Chicago is committed to helping Chicago residents access safe and affordable banking products and services. Our partners span across local nonprofit and community organizations to local government agencies, all working to help improve the financial stability or residents in Chicago.

Bank On Chicago is part of the national Bank On movement; like dozens of other Bank On coalitions across the country, Bank On Chicago partners across sectors to work to connect residents to banking products certified as meeting the Bank On National Account Standards. Bank On Chicago also helps residents with information about how to use these products effectively and how to navigate the consumer finance marketplace successfully. Bank On coalitions provide outreach and programming to connect residents to safe financial products, partner with local financial institutions to facilitate account access, and work to integrate banking access strategies into nonprofit and government social services.

Joining or supporting Bank On Chicago helps us do our critical work of connecting residents to safe and affordable banking products, starting them down a path towards a stronger financial future.
