Fourth quarter contributions to Alaskans push total above million dollar mark for 2015
Fourth quarter contributions of $445,171 pushed the total above $1 million given to Alaska communities in 2015 by First National Bank Alaska and its employees. The total includes charitable gifts, activity sponsorships and in-kind donations of time and talent during the past year.
Financial support totaling $1,027,190 was given last year to a wide variety of health, youth, educational, civic and arts organizations in the state. The educational and youth organizations continued to be a major focus of the bank’s support, with significant contributions to the University of Alaska Foundation, Alaska Pacific University, King Career Center, Boys and Girls Club, Alaska Theatre of Youth, Alaska School Activities Association, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Junior Achievement and the Girls Scouts Susitna Council.
During the fourth quarter, First National maintained its support of the Alaska Public Radio Network, Boy Scouts of America, Central Peninsula Health Foundation, Cook Inlet Tribal Council, Carol H. Brice Family Center, Covenant House Alaska, Juneau Symphony, The Cordova Center, Mat-Su Food Bank, and the Tundra Women’s Coalition, among many others.
In addition to these donations, bank employees volunteered hundreds of hours to assist organizations and the people they serve. First National Bank also donated thousands of dollars of gift items such as children’s toys, sporting goods, office supplies and clothing items to Alaska non-profit organizations.
Alaskan-owned and operated since 1922, First National proudly meets the financial needs of Alaskans with ATMs and 30 branches in 18 communities throughout the state.
