First Commonwealth Bank uses its financial education programs to help achieve its mission of improving the financial lives of their neighbors and their businesses. The bank incorporates a blend of in-person and virtual classes to teach individuals of all ages, incomes and backgrounds how to better manage, save, borrow and protect their money. Since 2010, FCB has provided more than 4,300 financial education sessions to more than 93,000 participants, and offered internal financial education to team members.
The ongoing success of this program has earned First Commonwealth Bank a 2022 Community Commitment Award from the ABA Foundation. This award recognizes and promotes the many valuable ways banks of all sizes contribute to economic growth, community development and enhancing the quality of life in their communities—and is a true badge of honor for any bank to earn.
