Bridgeview Bank Group is offering its annual Hearts for the Homeless program again this year, benefitting three Illinois homeless organizations, including the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless.

First launched in May 2015, the campaign raised an impressive $36,150 to support our work on behalf of homeless families, youth, and adults. This will be the third year the bank has run this five-month promotion.

Through Hearts for the Homeless, Bridgeview Bank will donate $50 to CCH when you do one of the following:

  • Open a new personal checking account with direct deposit
  • Open a new personal savings or money market account with $10,000 or more
  • Deposit $10,000 or more into an existing personal savings or money market account

To thank its clients, Bridgeview Bank also deposits $150 to each qualifying account that participates in the program.

“Bridgeview Bank is strongly invested in the communities we serve,” said Andrew M. Trippi, Vice President and Head of Community Banking at Bridgeview Bank. “With the help of our clients who participate in the Hearts for the Homeless program, we are proud to support Chicago Coalition for the Homeless – and their mission to prevent and end homelessness. On behalf of Bridgeview Bank, we wish to thank CCH for their efforts the help end the tragedy of homelessness. We are with you in this fight.”

Hearts for the Homeless will run through November 4, 2017. Find out more here, and accounts can be opened at any Bridgeview Bank location.

To preserve its independent voice, CCH does not accept government funding. CCH could not operate without the support of individuals, foundations, and businesses that share our commitment to ending homelessness.

We are grateful for the generous support of the Bridgeview Bank Group and the clients who participate in Hearts for the Homeless. Together, you make a difference in the lives of people living in need.
