Texas Banks 4 Food Banks Program

Texas banks are supporting those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. From assisting small businesses and helping to save jobs to making contributions to local charities. It’s what you do because you know, you serve and you love your communities.

Feeding Texas LogoTexas Bankers Foundation LogoTo honor the extraordinary efforts of our Texas community banks, TBA and its charitable arm, the Texas Bankers Foundation, is making a contribution in your bank’s name and that of other banks in your area to the region’s Feeding Texas-affiliated food bank, part of a network of 21 food banks that serve all 254 Texas counties.

The Texas Bankers Foundation board of directors, composed of community bankers from across the state, has approved contributions totaling $26,000. The donations will be made on behalf of Texas banks not only to food banks in the larger metropolitan areas, but to every Feeding Texas food bank across the state.

This initiative has been inspired by the banks that have already done so much to support local philanthropic efforts. And just by being a TBA member, a donation is being made in the name of your bank. Now we would like to encourage additional food bank contributions by Texas banks and the broader community. TBA has prepared a toolkit for all member banks to use. It includes:

  • A Feeding Texas Food Bank map to identify your affiliated food bank
  • Sample Press Release
  • Texas Banks 4 Food Banks Logos
  • Hashtags for Social Media
