FNCB Donates $82,625 to Diocese of Scranton Scholarship Foundation

FNCB Bank, locally-based for over 100 years, has announced an $82,625 Pennsylvania Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) donation to the Diocese of Scranton Scholarship Foundation. Since 2010, FNCB has contributed $1,200,000 to local educational and scholarship organizations through the EITC program.

The Diocese of Scranton donation will help provide tuition assistance to students enrolled in pre-school, elementary and high school programs in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Each year, more than 1,000 families receive tuition awards from the diocese foundation, many of which are funded through FNCB’s contributions.

“The EITC program has allowed us to help many non-profit organizations over the years,” said Gerard Champi, FNCB President and CEO. “We are happy to help the Diocese of Scranton Scholarship Foundation assist many deserving students and their families.”

The support of the Diocese of Scranton Scholarship Foundation is part of FNCB’s larger Community Caring initiative. As a true, local community bank, FNCB is making a difference through volunteerism, donations and outreach programs.
