BILLINGS, MT— May 9, 2023—First Interstate Bank has kicked off its 2023 Believe in Local campaign to celebrate the Bank’s longstanding commitment to the communities it serves. Forty nonprofit organizations across First Interstate’s 14-state footprint will each receive a $25,000 donation from First Interstate in support of their philanthropic work.
“Giving back to the places where we live and work is central to who we are as a community bank,” said Kevin Riley, President and CEO of First Interstate Bank. “We have a vested interest in supporting and strengthening in the places we call home, and Believe in Local captures our core values in action. This program celebrates the organizations providing much-needed tools and resources to help alleviate the diverse challenges facing our community partners and neighbors.”
First Interstate will reveal the first batch of 2023 Believe in Local recipients this week, with additional winners announced weekly until September 13, when First Interstate Bank marks its sixth annual Volunteer Day. On Volunteer Day, First Interstate closes all branches at noon to grant employees paid time to volunteer in their communities.
