The Civic 50 honorees are companies with annual U.S. revenues of at least $1 billion and are selected based on four dimensions of their corporate citizenship and social impact programs: 1) investment of resources and volunteerism; 2) integration across business functions; 3) institutionalization through policies; and 4) systems and impact measurement.

"For 175 years, Comerica has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to making a difference in the communities we serve," said Wendy Bridges, Comerica Bank Executive Vice President, Corporate Responsibility. "This recognition highlights the shared commitment of our dedicated colleagues who help deliver impactful change."

The following are highlights of the impact Comerica made on the communities it served in 2023:

  • Comerica volunteers contributed more than 79,000 hours of service to local communities.
  • Exceeded 100% of its three-year (2021-2023), $5 billion small business lending commitment. The funds helped deliver change by providing meaningful funding to more than 15,000 small businesses.
  • Delivered valuable financial education to individuals, entrepreneurs and small business owners. The Comerica $ense financial education program instructed more than 105,000 individuals from low- to moderate-income communities about important financial skills. In addition, its Small Business Bootcamps educated more than 8,000 entrepreneurs and small business owners.
  • Opened its innovative Comerica BusinessHQ in Dallas. The state-of-the-art facility aims to empower underserved communities by providing access to capital and other meaningful resources including temporary workspaces, printing and scanning capabilities; access to high-speed Wi-Fi, and more.

The Civic 50 survey is administered by True Impact, and the results are analyzed by VeraWorks. The survey instrument consists of quantitative and multiple-choice questions that informs the scoring process.
