Non-profits are the cornerstones of our communities and rely on donations to further their missions. Forward Bank -- including 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 communities to vote and help guide our selection of one charity per community to receive $5,000.
