Help Our Foundation Give Away $60,000

The Ion Bank Foundation continues to make a difference in the communities we serve through our support of a variety of causes by contributing millions of dollars to various non-profit organizations that need our help.

The 9th Annual Community Awards Program can help your favorite non-profit earn grant money. The Community Awards Program allows each Ion Bank customer to vote for their favorite non-profit organization to help the Ion Bank Foundation give away $60,000.

The Community Awards Program gives each Ion Bank customer the opportunity to vote for their favorite non-profit organization to help the Ion Bank Foundation give away $60,000. Enrolled non-profits will receive a donation of $25 from the Ion Bank Foundation for every vote for their organization.

It’s simple – vote for the charity of your choice. Voting will take place from February 1 through March 31, 2018. You must be an Ion Bank customer to vote. One vote per customer, however, for accounts with multiple owners, each owner may vote. Customers with multiple accounts may only vote once. Each customer can vote for only one organization. Please vote for your favorite non-profit organization from the choices listed below.

We are very excited about this giving program and hope you will partner with the Ion Bank Foundation to help us, help local non-profit organizations in our community.
