Community Involvement at the Atlanta Fed
The Atlanta Fed is committed to promoting the stability and safety of the U.S. economy and financial system. We are also dedicated to supporting our local communities.
The Bank's Community and Economic Development program fosters economic growth and opportunity in low- and moderate-income communities. Our Regional Economic Information Network gathers input from business leaders, community groups, and nonprofit organizations to ensure that Main Street perspectives are heard during conversations about monetary policy.
The Atlanta Fed encourages employees to display good corporate citizenship through participation in our community relations program. Our community relations efforts include:
- A formal volunteer program called FedCares, through which hundreds of Atlanta Fed volunteers donate their time and talent to volunteer with organizations that focus on education, community development, and health and human services.
- Employee giving in the form of Charity Parity, an employee-owned charitable organization. Over the past 60 years, Atlanta Fed employees have voluntarily donated millions of dollars to hundreds of nonprofit organizations.
