FNBO Raises Nearly $113,000 for Local United Way Chapters with Help of Customers, General Public
OMAHA, Neb. January 8, 2021—First National Bank of Omaha (FNBO) raised $112,910 in donations to United Way affiliates across its geographic footprint on behalf of its customers during the month of December. The initiative encouraged individuals throughout the communities it serves to “Share Joy” by donating to their local United Way affiliates via an FNBO Share Joy donation microsite. As part of this campaign, FNBO matched 50 cents of every dollar donated via the microsite, with a total match of $28,468.
FNBO selected United Way as its ‘Share Joy’ community partner because the nonprofit’s affiliates have been leading much of the work to combat the impact of COVID-19 by providing support to organizations addressing basic needs such as housing stability, food security and other financial support.
The bank’s contributions to Share Joy were made in partnership with its Business Customer Segment and Wealth Management division, as well as its Mortgage Banking division, which contacted its customers for support. The “Share Joy” microsite allowed contributors to designate their contributions to United Way affiliates in their communities.
