Citizenship Spotlight: Capital One Financial Corporation

Capital One Financial Corporation understands the importance of providing economic opportunities to families in their communities. That’s why they have a strong commitment to help make their communities dynamic places where families can live, work, grow and realize their dreams.

“There is nothing more important than having the skills that one needs to earn a living, and that is more than a transactional living, but something that actually moves them ahead in life and allows them to achieve their goals”. — Carolyn Berkowitz, President, Capital One Foundation

Through making investments and bringing together resources, Capital One not only transforms the physical environment, but also makes economic opportunity available for residents and businesses alike.

For this year’s Corporate Citizenship Awards, we were honored to recognize their work for the 2014 Best Community Improvement Program. As the winner of this category, Capitol One’s investment helps to ensure a low-income community of New Orleans that was hit hard by Hurricane Katrina not only survives, but thrives.
