Providence Bank & Trust is a bank that works for and with the community so they collectively build stronger and more vibrant neighborhoods together. While they donate 10% of the Bank’s profits to support the important work of local civic, non-profit and Christian organizations through The Providence Bank & Trust Stewardship Program, they know that being active stewards is so much more than just financial giving.

It is about offering unparalleled service and a dynamic array of commercial, personal, mortgage and trust banking capabilities that support local businesses, families, and individuals in their financial growth. You deserve a banking relationship that helps you realize your potential so you can accomplish great things. 

The conversion and consolidation of the Urban Partnership Bank data processing platforms, systems, and all customer files is scheduled to occur in early June. Providence Bank & Trust pledges to keep you up to date along the way as the conversion date approaches. You can expect to receive information at 90 and 60 days prior to conversion as well as a Welcome Guide about 30 days prior to conversion that will contain all the information you will need to know about your new banking relationship with Providence Bank & Trust.

In the meantime, we hope the following questions and answers will address any concerns you may have.
