Community Involvement

Our community

Where we live says a lot about who we are, and we’re fully committed to supporting the neighborhoods where we work and live. After all, our most important investment is our community.

Barclays Building

Our hometown pride runs strong

Our Online Banking business is located in Wilmington, Delaware. It’s also home to the US division of Barclaycard, the credit card and payment group of Barclays. (Our Barclays Wealth unit is based in New York City, and our Barclays Capital corporate finance business operates in more than a dozen U.S. cities.)

Why did we pick Wilmington to call home? When we saw that we had the unique opportunity to renovate an existing historic property in the thriving riverfront area—as well as develop a new site—we jumped at the opportunity. Today, we’re proud that our campus helps contribute to the community’s growth.

What we care about most

Our community service is focused on helping people build life skills. And we do it by mentoring, teaching, and most importantly, caring. We give paid time off to colleagues who want to volunteer in the community. Typically, more than 95% of Barclaycard US colleagues take us up on the offer – logging more than 30,000 volunteer hours each year.
