Trustmark In the Community
Trustmark’s mission of helping people increase wellbeing through better health and greater financial security extends to the community. Trustmark is an integral and active part of the communities we serve. Our associates work as individuals and as one company to give back and improve the quality of life for all.
The Trustmark Foundation, established in 1984, actively supports associate volunteerism through program donations and volunteer grants. In 2018, the Foundation distributed nearly $1 million in cash and gifts-in-kind. Foundation grants and programs directly support the United Way, community health, safety, education, and urban and cultural enrichment. A portion of the funds is earmarked to support local charitable organizations that have a meaningful impact on the communities near the company’s larger branch offices. Recipient organizations are selected by the associates in each branch office. Trustmark Companies associates who volunteer for a qualified tax-exempt organization are encouraged to apply for a Trustmark Foundation Volunteer Grant to help support the organization with its ongoing needs.
