Customers at The Fauquier Bank will continue to be able to choose which charities they want to help when opening a new checking account. A press release states:
As of January 1, 2020, we are excited to announce that as “A Community Bank Investing in Its Community,” we will continue Charity of Choice for the entire year of 2020. For every account opened, the Bank will donate $25 to a Charity of Choice and for every Tell-A-Friend coupon redeemed, we will donate $10. Our campaign will focus 80% on local charities and 20% on larger charities that we believe are important to our community. The Bank’s goal is to donate $80,000 to charities in 2020.
“We are passionate about helping the communities we serve and consider the Charity of Choice initiative one that will certainly assist many great nonprofit organizations with their efforts. As a community bank, we know it is important to support organizations that nurture our community. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with these organizations,” said Abbie Ford, VP, director of retail banking.
In the first quarter of 2019, The Fauquier Bank launched a campaign known as Charity of Choice. Thanks to the support of our community during the first quarter of 2019, the Bank donated over $40,000 to charities. “The success of the campaign in 2019 spoke volumes about the members of the community that we serve—there is a true desire to help those in need. Our customers have enthusiastically expressed their support of the various charity choices.”
