Empowering the communities we are so proud to serve. Uwharrie Bank aspires to help others soar by getting involved, doing the right thing and living by our values. We are committed to improving lives. For every organization we assist, every cause we support, every donation we give, we’re making our communities stronger and inspiring others to do the same.
During the month of April we celebrate the longstanding tradition of hometown banking and the people who make it all happen! Uwharrie Bank wants to help build stronger communities and help drive economic prosperity within the counties we serve. We love serving the community and can be found volunteering at local schools, food pantries and area clothing closets.
The Charlotte region is surrounded by rural counties and a recent economic summit addressed the urban and rural divide and looked for ways to promote economic development in rural counties. Uwharrie Bank partners with rural businesses to help them succeed.
There has never been such a great need for community banking as there is now. Uwharrie Bank's unique and personal relationship with customers helps to drive their success and support their growth.
During the coronavirus pandemic the Paycheck Protection Program provided a number of banks with a timely opportunity to connect with minority-owned businesses which was causing pain for many - especially those in the African American community.
The Denim Difference
We feel it's important to be generous and being comfortable and casual while doing so is an added bonus! Uwharrie Bank gives back to the community through the Denim Difference, a local initiative which helps raise money for charities in Anson, Stanly, Cabarrus and Mecklenburg counties. Associates can donate $10/month for the option to wear jeans to work on Fridays.
Each year Uwharrie Bank associates eagerly await the "back-to-school" season, helping kids in the community with much needed school supplies. Backpacks, notebooks, pencils, scissors and many other essentials make there way to children across Anson, Stanly, Cabarrus and Mecklenburg counties. When kids have the tools they need, grades improve and self-esteem soars.
