The Fidelity Bank legacy is one of generous community investment, charitable support and volunteerism. Through our actions, we serve as a catalyst for building community spirit and celebrating our cities because our success is unconditionally linked.
Founded in 1961 by Homer and Marvin Bastian, the Bastian Foundation was created as a 501(c)3 exempt private foundation to manage contributions to charitable, scientific, literary and educational purposes.
In 2008, the foundation was reorganized and renamed as The Fidelity Bank Foundation, or Fidelity Foundation, for short. Since then, it has provided grant funding to non-profit organizations representing the arts, education, human services and community betterment.
As a fourth generation family-owned company, Fidelity Bank upholds a strong tradition of corporate citizenship. We are proud of our giving heritage and committed to supporting causes that contribute to the well-being of the communities which we serve.
