About Carver Federal Savings Bank: Print

Carver was founded in 1948 to serve African-American communities whose residents, businesses, and institutions had limited access to mainstream financial services. Today, Carver is the largest African-American operated bank in the United States. Since its inception, the Bank has continuously been headquartered in Harlem, and most of our ten branches and 24/7 ATM Centers are located in low- to moderate- income neighborhoods. To share in Carver’s history Click Here to Watch.

Carver Bank has been designated by the U.S. Treasury Department as a Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) because of Carver’s community-focused banking services and dedication to the economic viability and revitalization of underserved neighborhoods.logo

A measure of its progress in achieving this goal includes the Bank’s most recent “Outstanding” Community Reinvestment Act rating.

As CDFI Banks work to attract greater levels of investment and other support, the industry must do a better job of “telling the story” of the impact that is being generated by the sector. To facilitate this, NCIF created the Bank Impact Dashboard. To learn more or request a copy of Carver’s Impact Report, contact Takisia.Whites@carverbank.com.

Celeste Beatty and her team are a minority women owned business that has been doing great things since their inception. The product are now carried by FreshDirect & Wal-Mart which speaks volumes towards their journey and success.

More details on the Harlem Brewing Company are below:

the first brews were made in her studio apartment right across from Marcus Garvey Park. She’d finally opened the gift of a home brew kit that sat in the closet for several weeks (that might explain why the first brewed weren’t such a hit). So, she kept on brewing, never giving up on perfecting her recipes. After challenges trying to open a local brewery, she took her home grown recipes to Olde Saratoga Brewery, working closely with Paul and Chris, both fine brewers, bottling her flagship Harlem Brew-Sugar Hill Golden Ale. On June 19, 2001,none of the packaging materials were ready so recycled beer boxes were gathered. With the amazing support from family, friends and neighbors (Uncle Arthur drove a Penske truck full of the first batch of beer over the river and through an upstate area called Harlem Valley back to 125th Street), Harlem Brewing Company launched at the Studio Museum in Harlem.
