Burling Backs Local Businesses, From Artists to Entrepreneurs

Only five of the 76 banks with a branch or office in Chicago put 100% of their deposits to work in Chicago and invest 85 percent or more of their total money back into the local economy. Burling Bank is one of those banks.

In our latest Burling Real Economy Impact Report produced in collaboration with the local startup Mighty, we dig deeper into these statistics. We show how your choice to bank with Burling creates a real positive impact in Chicago’s economy.

We also look at the human side of these investments through interviews with two local entrepreneurs who bank with Burling: BridgeFT Co-founder and CEO Rasheed Hammouda and AW Studio Owner Amanda Williams. We encourage you to read the full report to learn more about how your money is helping to improve Chicago’s small business and cultural landscape.
