Introducing Community Spark – Ignite Your Community Connections

By October 1, 20202 min read

Our goal at Social Assurance is to help financial brands like yours build and grow relationships with your community. That’s why we are excited to announce our newest product – Community Spark. This solution not only helps your team manage community involvement, but will also help coordinate, track and report on donation and investment activities.

Community Spark gives your bank or credit union the tools it needs to manage your community involvement. From one platform, track your donations, loans, activities and investments. It not only makes this easy, but also fun – helping to foster employee engagement. Further, you can integrate this platform with your marketing workflows to better share and communicate the difference you make in your community. Benefits of Community Spark include:

Empowering Community Development

See an overview of all your community-driven initiatives. With Community Spark, you can manage all community investments, volunteer hours, and charitable giving. All donation requests can now be reviewed, approved, distributed and tracked for CRA credit from one dashboard. Further, you can encourage your employees to participate in volunteerism by creating, inviting and sharing community events, registration and involvement.

Engaging Your Employees

Community Spark is uniquely designed to enable buy-in from your organization. Incentivize and encourage your employees to create social good through the use of Sparks. These shout-outs help recognize the impact employees are making and drives them toward further involvement. Further, by allowing employees to champion others in the organization, it imbeds a sense of service into your culture and reinforces the community values most important to your organization.

Simplifying CRA Management

Connect your social initiatives to simplify your CRA tracking. Community Spark comes with built-in CRA eligibility activity qualification and approval workflows. With direct import tools, your LMI loans and investments can be easily tracked and measured. Plus, with on-demand CRA reporting and auditor access controls, you can help streamline examination preparation and workflows.

We know that ​banks and credit unions have always played a critical role in helping their communities thrive. Either through community impact initiatives, volunteering, or through charitable contributions. At Social Assurance we believe that Community Spark will give financial institutions the tool to be able to not only measure their community impact but continue to engage employees and build a culture around it.
