Fidelity Community Giving Program
At Fidelity Bank, we take great pride in supporting our community through charitable giving. In fact, one of the primary core values of the bank is that of charitable giving and financial support of organizations within the region. As we help others prosper, we prosper as well.
Through the Fidelity Community Giving Program, we provide financial assistance and in-kind donations to many worthy causes and organizations. As a leading institution within the community, we feel that aid should be given to those organizations and groups that have helped the region grow and prosper. Our dedicated Donations Committee chooses organizations that are most worthy and that best support our community.
As a rule, Fidelity will not support organizations whose activities do not benefit the communities the Bank serves. Fidelity also does not fund political organizations or projects or activities that benefit an individual. Commitment during previous years in and of itself doesn't necessarily mean continued support. However, if previous support is combined with any other number of factors, this information will be taken into consideration.
Fidelity Bank supports organizations in four main categories:
· 501 (c) 3 non-profit groups (i.e. United Way, American Red Cross, etc.)
· School groups (booster clubs, athletic, academic or extracurricular groups)
· Community-based groups (police & fire departments, libraries, parks, etc.)
· Faith-based groups (churches, synagogues, mosques, etc.)
