The Award Recognizes Banks and Credit Unions for Their Extraordinary Efforts to Increase Financial Stability During the Annual America Saves Week
Today, America Saves announced FNB Bank, Inc. (FNB) as a recipient of the 2023 Designation of Savings Excellence Award (DOSE), the only national award focused on recognizing financial institutions for their work in helping Americans improve financial stability. The coveted honor highlights banks and credit unions that made an extraordinary effort to promote positive saving behaviors in their community during the annual America Saves Week campaign.
FNB was one of only 15 recipients to be honored this year out of more than 3,900 organizations who participated in America Saves Week in 2023, which took place February 27 – March 3.
“America Saves has the distinct honor of working with financial institutions that actually care about their customers and members,” said Kia McCallister-Young, Director of America Saves. “That has always been a stand-out point to me, that the organizations that participate in America Saves Week go the extra mile; there’s no requirement to be a part of this campaign, they’re here because they WANT to be, and they believe in the message of helping their employees, constituents, and community be more financially confident. We’re thrilled to be able to honor these banks and credit unions and highlight their hard work.”
America Saves Week is a time-honored, national event bringing together thousands of organizations across multiple sectors to transform the lives of Americans by encouraging them to save successfully. FNB alongside other participating financial institutions helped reach nearly nine million people and during the weeklong event, individuals deposited more than $788 million into new or existing savings accounts.
“We are proud to be recognized as one of the eight banks across the nation to earn the annual America Saves Designation of Savings Excellence award,” stated Brooke Wiles, FNB Marketing Director. “We believe it is more important than ever for individuals to save money and be prepared for the unexpected.
