Creation of a Community Grant Fund:

Athens Federal Community Bank has a rich history of community involvement in McMinn, Monroe, Bradley, Loudon, Meigs and Polk counties, as well as surrounding communities. This commitment was strengthened by the establishment of Athens Federal Foundation, a Charitable Foundation created to provide funding to support charitable causes within Athens Federal Community Bank’s market area.

The Foundation is keenly interested in funding community development via affordable housing, job training, and programs that assist the economically disadvantaged. The Foundation believes that education of youth is the future and special emphasis will be given to educational efforts. Programs providing continued good health care and supportive human service programs are also a priority. The Foundation will also support local cultural groups and institutions knowing these grants will broaden access to cultural and arts activities and will enhance the quality of life in the communities in which Athens Federal Community Bank operates.
