Beneficial State Bank Review

"Since 2016, large banks have funneled over $6.9 trillion into fossil fuels and extractive energy. Voting with your dollars and moving your money to banks that invest in a healthy future can have a big impact—as it did in the 1980’s when the divestment movement pressured South Africa to dismantle apartheid."

Beneficial State Bank is an amazing partner, supporting AltaSea and helping us fulfill our mission every day. The BSB team is always patient, helpful, knowledgeable, and congenial. They understand the pressures on operating a nonprofit and always have creative solutions. Definitely 5 stars!

It has been such a joy to work with a bank who is working to re-imagine what banking can be. The level of care and respect has far exceeded our expectations and the ability to actually to speak with someone who remembers your last conversation has been a joy.

As a social justice nonprofit, finding a values-aligned bank was important to us. Beneficial State Bank is one of the most social justice oriented banks in the country, and I have appreciated their statements and values as an organization, and have been treated well by their whole banking team.

We are thrilled to be working with a bank whose values are aligned with our values. Since making the switch in early 2019, their team has provided diligent customer service and the support we need to continue growing our business.

Kiss The Ground, Los Angeles - December 19, 2019

Beneficial State Bank has been so welcoming and interested in our organization and our mission. They've been patient as we work through growing pains and constant evolvement, and they are always a short phone call away, always responsive and willing to help, and often offer to meet us at our office rather than have us drive to them. Their customer service is unlike any other bank I've ever worked with.
