Pittsburgh-based F.N.B. Corp. (NYSE: FNB), parent company of First National Bank, announced a commitment of $1 million to its foundation in support of COVID-19 relief efforts.
Funds will be disbursed through the FNB Foundation to local organizations that assist communities and businesses across the bank's seven-state footprint.
In South Carolina, FNB has offices in Charleston, Gaffney and Fort Mill.
"The financial services industry is essential to aiding our nation in the recovery from this public health crisis. Through our commitment to COVID-19 relief efforts, we will work together with our neighbors to help our communities heal, rebuild and be stronger than ever," said Vincent J. Delie, Jr., chairman, president and chief executive officer of F.N.B. Corporation and First National Bank.
COVID-19 relief funds from the FNB Foundation reinforce the bank's long-standing dedication to supporting the customers and communities it serves, company officials said. Donations will help provide medical equipment, increase access to food, and support businesses and individuals facing financial hardships as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the officials said.
They said the donation builds on recent actions FNB has taken to support its customers, employees and communities impacted by COVID-19, as well as its intent to participate in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act programs, including the new SBA Paycheck Protection Program, implementing additional financial relief programs to assist businesses and customers, administering comprehensive health and safety measures for its employees and allocating up to $1 million in special relief payments to front-line and operations employees.
