The benefits of CSR do not only aid the M&T Bank’s image, but also the communities it touches. Through their community leadership they have created brand loyalty with their customers, and motivated employees to help in strengthening their communities. M&T Bank states on their own website they are “a reliable bank that’s strong and stable.” They go on to say, “you can count on us because M&T Bank is one of the best performing regional banks in the nation today.” They are “committed to the communities it serves,” and are “a convenient bank that’s close and accessible.” ("Who is M&T," n.d.) M&T goes on to explain how community is important for their continued success. This is why M&T Bank takes an “engaged” approach in the local communities in which they operate.
