Philanthropy is a key aspect of Fremont Bank's community relations efforts. The majority of our charitable giving is made through the continuing work and contributions of Fremont Bank Foundation.
Established in 1995 under the direction of Fremont Bank's late founder, Morris Hyman, and his wife, Alvirda, Fremont Bank Foundation is an independent, private, grant-making foundation that is solely funded by Fremont Bank.
Formed with an initial investment of $20,000, the Foundation now receives a significant percentage of Fremont Bank's pre-tax income each year. These substantial funds allow us to continuously invest in local nonprofit organizations for the implementation of their extraordinary visions, let it be $1,000 for a shed for children's riding toys–our first grant; or $1,500,000 for a new critical care pavilion–our largest contribution to date.
Sharing with the community is at the heart of Fremont Bank Foundation, which mission is to provide financial assistance to nonprofit organizations for the implementation of services and programs that enhance the quality of life for all people in the communities served by Fremont Bank.
Fremont Bank Foundation does not accept uninvited proposals. The members of our Board of Directors and our Advisory Committees prefer to seek out and select first-hand the organizations and/or projects for potential grant funding.
