At FNCB, we strive to meet the needs of the communities we serve by supporting organizations that improve educational and economic opportunities of low-and-moderate income individuals, youth initiatives and programs that enhance the cultural and economic development of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
In 2015, FNCB contributed $325,000 to organizations in our communities. Here are just a few of the organizations we helped:
We will consider providing support to applicants that are tax-exempt and located in areas served by our 19 branches in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Applicants generally must be designated as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Organizations that actively partner with FNCB by banking with us and providing recognition of the bank's support will receive preferred consideration. Local organizations receive priority over national organizations.
We primarily consider donations/sponsorships for organizations that support:
Requests given preferential consideration are organizations that meet the following criteria:
While we consider it our responsibility to support our communities, we are unable to grant requests that do not align with our mission. These include, but are not limited to: political organizations, organizations which do not directly benefit the community, donations to individuals, donations for trips or tours, advertising for benefit purposes, telephone solicitation, events that have already taken place and organizations that discriminate.
