First National Bank Alaska gave $208,865 to communities across the state in July, August and September of 2014. This total includes charitable gifts, activity sponsorships, and community and business sponsorships distributed statewide by the bank and its employees.

A portion of the third-quarter giving was First Nationals continued support of the Alaska State Activities Association (ASAA), part of the $75,000 annual donation for title sponsorship of statewide high school championships.
