Throughout our history, Old National has focused — and continues to be focused — on strengthening and supporting the communities we serve. We do so through financial education, community development initiatives, charitable giving and sponsorships, as well as our approach to sustainability.

    Old National is dedicated to upholding the foundations of the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) by providing lending, investment and service opportunities that support underserved populations and communities. In February 2022, Old National unveiled a $8.3 billion, five-year Community Growth Plan, and in 2024 the Plan was expanded to $9.5 billion. Read more about the Plan here.

    Our CRA work is driven by the members of our Community Outreach & Financial Empowerment team, who engage organizations and leaders throughout our footprint to assess community needs with a special emphasis on serving Low-to-Moderate Income (LMI) populations and underrepresented groups.

  • A neighborhood in the community that we serve


    Established in 2015, the ONB Community Equity team plays a critical role in community development and sustainability projects throughout Old National’s footprint. With extensive expertise in tax credits, the team provides equity capital and loans to support projects that rehabilitate historic buildings, provide affordable housing, invest in low-income communities and generate alternative energy.

Financial Education

Improved financial knowledge leads to a better future for individuals and families and, in turn, stronger communities. Drawing upon the expertise of our team members, we have created several financial education programs for the communities we serve.

This includes Real-Life Finance, our very own branded curriculum on a digital platform or in-person workshop for your organization. Learn about Real-Life Finance.

Charitable Giving Programs

Old National’s commitment to charitable giving serves as the cornerstone of our identity and helps define our mission as a community bank. In 2023, we invested approximately $11.8 million in our communities via charitable giving and sponsorships, benefiting more than 2,000 organizations. Learn more about our charitable giving programs.
