Forward Bank is Sharing the Love with Local Charities & Non-Profits January 24, 2019

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 on behalf of our customers, we’ve created the Charitable Money Market Account (CMMA). Since its inception we’ve given over $841,000 to 200+ worthwhile organizations!

“The Board, Management and Staff at Forward are dedicated to maintaining strong and healthy communities through charitable giving and volunteering. Our customers see the important role that charitable organizations play in our communities, and they find ways like the CMMA program to support them,” said Bill Sennholz, CEO/President at Forward Bank.

To open and maintain a CMMA, all the customer needs to do is open the account, designate a participating non-profit organization, school, or church, and keep a balance in their account throughout the year. At the end of the calendar year, Forward Bank will make a donation to the designated charity on behalf of the customer based on their average account balance.
