ALIVE

Success means giving
We focus on five key areas for Community Development:

ACCESS TO BANK SERVICES

LENDING IN THE COMMUNITY

INVESTING IN THE COMMUNITY

VOLUNTEERISM

FINANCIAL EDUCATION

Access to Bank Services

 We are proud to support local initiatives to help unbanked and underbanked residents. First Financial continues to expand access to financial services by providing low- and moderate-income communities with new banking centers, convenient surcharge-free ATMs and easier ways to manage finances digitally.

Lending in the Community

 We believe community banks play a critical role in keeping our local economies vibrant and strong. First Financial has provided loans to individuals, businesses and agencies for over 150 years. By providing financial resources for lending needs, we are able to help our communities attract new businesses and support local revitalization efforts.

 

Investing in the Community

 First Financial is committed to collaborating with non-profit agencies that serve low- and moderate-income individuals and families. We support these vital community organizations through financial investments, in-kind services, sponsorships, and donations. We contribute financially to organizations that focus on providing affordable housing, home mortgages and job creation programs.

Volunteerism

 We believe that together we will enhance economic opportunities and build stronger neighborhoods which stabilize the foundation for economic growth and development. Through volunteerism our associates take active roles in strengthening the communities where they live and work. First Financial coordinates volunteer efforts with local agencies in all of our markets and offers 8 hours of paid time off for our associates to volunteer for and support their causes.

Education

 To help build financial confidence, we offer educational workshops that teach individuals and entrepreneurs how to maintain long-term financial stability through enhanced money management skills and positive banking relationships. The personal finance curriculum spans all age demographics and topics including saving, investing, borrowing basics, setting financial goals and preventing financial exploitation. The small business programs address critical topics for first-time business owners and include banking services, insurance, organizational structure, risk management and time management.

In accordance with the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), First Financial Bank is required to maintain and, upon request, make available for public inspection a complete CRA Public File, which includes information about the Bank's branch and ATM locations, our products and services, regulatory performance evaluations of our record of meeting community credit needs, and other information.

Interested parties can request to review the data provided at any of our banking centers. In addition, if a document hard copy is needed, a request can be made by emailing CommunityDevelopment@bankatfirst.com

We're proud to give back to the communities
in which we live and serve.
