First Commonwealth Bank’s Financial Literacy Program Recognized by FDIC as Part of Winter 2020’s Success Stories
Indiana, PA (February 28) – First Commonwealth Bank has been recognized by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s (FDIC) Money Smart Success Stories-Winter 2020 edition for having the Impactful Money Smart for Adults Partnership of the Year. First Commonwealth partnered with Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania to provide nonviolent offenders the opportunity to serve the rest of their sentence in a community setting, instead of jail. Program participants can resume their careers and return to the workforce while getting help reintegrating into the community.
“We appreciate the FDIC’s recognition of our partnership with Goodwill and the opportunity to provide financial literacy as they assist their audience with unique challenges to reintegrate back into a community” remarked First Commonwealth Bank’s Financial Literacy Program Coordinator, Anna Frank. “The timing of this acknowledgement is also appropriate as it falls during our participation in America Saves Week,” Frank added.
More information on the program and First Commonwealth Bank’s partnership with Goodwill, in addition to the other Success Stories, can be found here on the FDIC page. As of December 2019, First Commonwealth has taught 22 sessions to more than 220 participants in this specific program.
This financial literacy example is one of many that First Commonwealth Bank is committed to in delivering its mission of “Improving the financial lives of our neighbors and their businesses.” Under the direction of a dedicated Financial Literacy Program Coordinator, First Commonwealth offers workshops and participates in national, regional and local financial education initiatives which totaled 716 educational sessions, reaching 15,130 individuals in 2019.
