First National Community Impact Report


A letter from our President

Banking is about so much more than taking deposits and giving out loans. At First National Bank of Omaha, we believe banking is about building strong communities and staying true to the people who matter most - our customers, our employees and the communities we call home. By doing so, we feed a virtuous cycle of success that impacts every facet of the communities we serve.

We stay true to our customers by providing quality products and services, longstanding relationships and a customer experience that is second to none. When our customers trust us with their financial needs, they also enable us to do good for others. A mortgage loan given to a consumer provides the opportunity for that individual to build equity and start creating generational wealth. A loan given to an entrepreneur provides the opportunity to start a business, create more local jobs and increase the availability of local goods and services.

First National Bank of Omaha employees serve our customers with financial expertise and build our communities by volunteering their time, talent and treasure. We stay true to our employees by continuously providing meaningful ways for them to make a difference, career growth opportunities and benefits that help them (and their families) thrive.

The continued commitment of our customers and employees enables First National Bank of Omaha to stays true to our communities through philanthropic investments in more than 1,200 nonprofit organizations across our footprint. These organizations are working to create strong communities where everyone succeeds through initiatives related to building educated workforces, strengthening local economies, revitalizing neighborhoods and increasing access to affordable housing, just to name a few.

Our 2018 First in the Community Impact Report summarizes our philanthropic investments and highlights some of the outcomes our employees and community partners have been able to achieve. I am proud of these accomplishments but also acknowledge that building strong communities is a journey, not a destination. We will continue to stay true to those who matter most in 2019 and beyond as we work toward our vision of successful communities in all the places we operate.

Sincerely,

Clark Lauritzen signature

Chairman and President
