About Us

Washington Trust in the Community

Washington Trust is well known for our community involvement.

Washington Trust EmployeesWe believe that our success as an institution is part and parcel of the achievement of the communities as a whole. Sometimes the solution is grant money; sometimes it's brainstorming. And, sometimes it's simply lending a hand. Washington Trust is proud to reach out to the community in a variety of ways that are meaningful, needed, and appreciated.

Children at Peanut Butter DriveAnnual Peanut Butter Drive

Since Washington Trust started its Peanut Butter Drive in 2001, we have collected more than 115 tons of peanut butter!

The Washington Trust volunteers are dedicated, professional, and full of enthusiasm. They are so easy to work with, and they are essential to the success of the Walk. We wanted to honor their incredible volunteer efforts with a special award this year. We truly couldn't do it without them!"
