On Thursday, July 12, Monticello's branch of the Capital City Bank Group presented a $2,000 check to the Jefferson Senior Citizens Center, which was received by the center's Director Diane Fincham and Board Member Nan Baughman.
The Capital City Bank Group (CCBG) Foundation donates funds to charitable organizations in the communities it serves. During the 2018 grant cycle, the CCBG Foundation reinvested $2,500 into the Jefferson County community by way of grants awarded to organizations like the Jefferson Senior Citizens Center. The grants provided by the CCBG Foundation help these organizations and others like them fulfill their missions and enhance the lives of hundreds of local citizens.
"We’re thankful we are able to help these organizations make a difference within the communities they serve,” said Justin Forehand, Capital City Bank president of Jefferson, Madison and Taylor counties.
“Community involvement has always been a hallmark of Capital City Bank and by investing in worthwhile organizations such as these, the Capital City Bank Group Foundation can help build stronger communities.”
The CCBG Foundation is a non-profit organization created in 1983 by Capital City Bank Group that provides grants to non-profit, charitable organizations and institutions exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The mission of the CCBG Foundation is to invest in initiatives that benefit local communities. A majority of the funds are distributed to specific areas of focus, including: arts/culture, children/youth services, economic/community development, education, health/sciences and human services.
Applications are reviewed once a year and are due by April 1.
