In line with the vision of being a great business helping to create a better world, First National Bank (FNB) views its role within the country as going way beyond that of a major player in the business environment. A big focus for many years has been on adopting initiatives that will make South Africa a better place for all.
A major element in achieving the goal of helping to create a better world is the work of the FNB Fund. The FNB Fund is a significant part of the FirstRand Foundation, which has a sixteen-years history of giving to the community. The Foundation focuses on the development and empowerment of the broader community through partnerships with best practice non-profit organisations nationwide.
A programmatic approach to giving was introduced in 2007 to streamline the Foundation's focus areas. This approach has resulted in more well thought-out and meaningful giving as attention is directed to identified strategic focus areas. The new approach will ensure that we make a greater impact on our focus areas.
