Truist Small Business Initiative

Truist’s commitment to small business is about more than just helping small business owners manage their finances. We know that to truly build better communities, we must support those who work tirelessly to serve our neighbors with care, create jobs, and drive the economy.

That’s why Truist is proud to partner with Georgia Aquarium to support local small businesses through the Surfacing Small Business section of Georgia Aquarium’s gift shop. There you’ll find a selection of carefully curated items from local small businesses.

Items purchased from Surfacing Small Businesses will not only support small businesses, but Truist is proud to also donate $1 from each purchase to support Georgia Aquarium’s conservation efforts, up to $10,000.

Truist is proud to care for those who care. Join us in celebrating small businesses at Georgia Aquarium!
