“This pandemic has impacted so many of our customers, especially our small businesses and independently owned restaurants,” said Susie Goldschmidt, Oak Park and River Forest Market President for Byline Bank. “These businesses play such an important role in the OPRF community, and we hope this simple act can help out during these winter months.”
Byline is privileged to be a part of the OPRF community and is proud to have contributed more than $90,000 in sponsorships and support to the area this year, alone. Also, earlier this year, Byline was able to provide $12.8 million in financing for affordable housing initiatives in the Oak Park and Austin areas, and was further able to provide $14.8 million* in Paycheck Protection Program loans to the OPRF community, during a critical time for many businesses, struggling as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It’s how we help Oak Park Write Its Story.
Byline is a true neighborhood bank. Our bankers understand the community and know what you need. We’re proud to be a partner in your life.

In The Community
The Oak Park-River Forest Community Foundation is dedicated to performing philanthropic services with a primary focus on creating significant impacts within the communities of Oak Park and River Forest. Its noble mission is rooted in fostering a racially just society where every community member has the opportunity to thrive and prosper.
When we say Byline is a local bank invested in the community, we mean it. For Giving Tuesday, we’re supporting the Oak Park-River Forest Community Foundation with a $5,000 donation. We share their belief that each member of a suburban community should have equitable opportunities and experiences, no matter their demographic background.
That’s Banking Done Right. That’s Byline.
