Help Us Share the Love

Local charities are a key component in keeping our communities strong. They fill unique and important niches in helping us all with the educational, spiritual, cultural, social, and health aspects of our lives. 

To provide a consistent donation stream for our local charities, we've created the Charitable Money Market Account (CMMA).

Open a CMMA and Forward Bank will make a donation to a participating charity of your choice on your behalf based on your average balance – no money is taken from your account.
