In the Community

Washington Trust is well known for our community involvement

We 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.



Our employees are actively involved in the community, serving as board members, committee chairs, coaches, and mentors.



Washington Trust sponsors a wide range of community events and activities such as road races, concerts, and festivals.
