Founded in 2007, Beneficial State Bank, focuses on economic and environmental sustainability and takes a triple-bottom-line approach to community and environmental banking.

Our vision is of a banking industry that is fair to the person with the least bargaining power; provides access to financial services for all our communities, particularly the traditionally under-served; results in the long-term prosperity of responsible consumers; promotes financial system stability; and contributes to the sustainability of the environmental commons. We call this vision beneficial banking.
