Live First Community Giving 2021
Applications available starting April 1st
Giving back is a key part of our mission here at First International Bank & Trust (FIBT). We know that if our communities are healthy and thriving, so are we. Non-profit organizations support the quality of life for the communities we serve by helping those in need and giving shape to bold dreams and noble causes.
To promote and support the inspiring work done by our non-profits, First International Bank & Trust is proud to announce its Seventh Annual Live First Community Giving Campaign. Charitable and community organizations are encouraged to apply for awards totaling $35,000.
Due to the overwhelming response in 2020, FIBT awarded two Grand Prize grants of $10,000 – one to Jessy’s Tox Box and one to Ryan House. Jessy’s Toy Box is a non-profit that collects new toys, games, blankets and gift cards. Through monetary donations, such as the $10,000 grant, they provide children who are in the hospital iPads and other items to make their stay a little easier. Ryan House embraces children and their families as they navigate life-limiting or end-of-life journeys. Their goal is to provide free coordinated care and improve the quality of life for medically fragile children and their families in Arizona.
Who can apply?
Any organization benefiting the communities served by First International Bank & Trust. This includes non-profit organizations, community groups, classroom initiatives, etc. If you can demonstrate value to the community, you can apply for a Live First Community Grant!
What’s at stake?
- Grand Prize: One grant of $10,000
