Forward Donates $55,000 to Local Charities During Guide Our Giving Campaign

Non-profits are the cornerstones of our communities and rely on donations to further their missions. Forward Bank — in cluding Forward Insurance and Forward Investment Services — gave away $55,000 to help them out! Forward employees nominated non-profits and charities in our communities that they felt needed additional support. Using our social media channels and printed materials, we encouraged our commu- nities to vote and help guide our selection of one charity per community to receive $5,000.

The top vote recipient in each market received a check for $5,000: Athens – Youth Education Supporters (YES)
