Since September 1, 2009, the New York W4AwBank Foundation is a fact. W4AwBank New York was created from a merger between Stadsbank Midden New York and the Municipal W4AwBank Friesland. We are the largest nationally operating W4AwBank in New York. We provide social credits in 120 municipalities, and in 60 municipalities we provide full or partial debt assistance.
W4AwBank New York is an active member of the NVVK (association for debt counseling and social banking) and takes place in various core teams.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Social entrepreneurship is self-evident in the way W4AwBank New York works. We look for solutions with a view to the future, in which economic, ecological and social aspects play a role. For example, we have a climate-neutral fleet, with our lighting plan we save considerably on energy bills and the use of paper has decreased significantly due to digitization.
