The mission of TB&T’s Spirit of Giving Fund is to provide a positive and measurable impact
on the communities we serve through our financial, volunteer, and in-kind support of
educational, cultural, and social service programs throughout East Texas. To address the
opportunities and challenges facing our local communities, we support a diverse group of
organizations and initiatives working to improve lives.
Our objective is to enhance the economic opportunity, financial self-sufficiency, educational
advancement, health and welfare, and quality of life of all of our East Texas neighbors.
A vibrant and educated workforce is the foundation of a productive society. Texas Bank
and Trust continues to create positive change to that end by directing its financial “Spirit
of Giving” support to the following impact areas:
• Education and Literacy Advancement
• Community Outreach and Welfare Services
• Health Initiatives and Awareness
• Art and Cultural Enrichment
• Economic Development
Primary consideration for financial support will be given to those organizations which provide
services within the bank’s trade areas. Fund requests may be submitted throughout the year.
However, no more than TWO financial contributions per organization will be distributed
in any calendar year without prior approval by Executive Management. Requests are not
automatically renewed each year. Recipients would be responsible for requesting renewed support.
Due to budget limitations and our mission focus, Texas Bank and Trust’s “Spirit of Giving”
Fund generally does NOT provide direct financial support to the following:
• Political campaigns and/or candidates
• Employment unions
• Organizations that provide support primarily outside of the bank’s service areas
• Organizations raising funds primarily for administrative/operational expenses
• Organizations raising funds for a group or individual’s travel-related expenses
All requests for Texas Bank and Trust “Spirit of Giving “ financial support must be submitted in writing. Requests may be submitted to any TBT branch location or directly to the Marketing Division, ATTN: TBT Spirit of Giving, P.O. Box 3188 Longview, Texas 75606; by fax at (903) 237-1890. Annual “Spirit of Giving” funds are limited. Therefore, not every request can be granted.
