FNBO Contributes Nearly $36,000 to Colorado Organizations Supporting Wildfire Recovery
Bank Employees Donated to Employee Impact Fund with company match.
OMAHA, Neb. December 17, 2020—First National Bank of Omaha (FNBO) and its employees have contributed nearly $36,000 in grants to two Colorado organizations working on rebuilding and recovery efforts following the devastating wildfires earlier his year, said Nathan Ewert, market president. FNBO named as grant recipients the American Red Cross, $5,800; and United Way of Larimer County, $30,000.
FNBO’s Employee Impact Fund was created this year to more effectively coordinate company and employee giving efforts to help the communities the bank serves across its seven-state footprint recover when disasters or other emergencies strike. Recovery from the devastating Cameron Peak, East Troublesome, Cal-Wood and Left Hand Canyon Fires in Boulder and Larimer Counties is the focus of the Impact Fund this time.
“At FNBO, our community work supports our vision of successful communities in all the places we call home and establishing the Employee Impact Fund allows the bank and its employees to work together to contribute to that success when our communities need us the most,” Ewert said.
