Forward Financial Bank Charitable Money Market Account Fulfills Mission of Giving

The Forward Financial Bank team was proud to present Big Brothers Big Sisters with a check for $649.33 on behalf of customers in our area participating in the Charitable Money Market program.

With $95,000 in contributions delivered in January, the total giving for the program tops $573,000 since inception. Over 125 different non-profits, churches, and schools in the Central Wisconsin area received donations from Forward Financial Bank.

“The Board, Management and Staff at Forward are dedicated to maintaining strong and healthy communities through charitable giving and volunteering. It is clear that our customers see the important role that charitable organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters play in our communities, and they find ways like the CMMA program to support the groups important to them,” Forward Financial Bank Office Manager in Marshfield, Nicole Ellis said.

To open and maintain a CMMA, all the customer needs to do is open the account, designate a participating non-profit organization, school, or church, and keep a balance in their account throughout the year. The average balance in their account is calculated at the end of the calendar year, and the bank donates one-tenth percent of the customer’s average balance to that organization.

Forward Financial Bank is a customer-owned, independent community bank that operates to benefit its depositors while offering no fee deposit options, lower lending fees and rates. Forward Financial Bank currently has offices in Colby, Greenwood, Stanley, Thorp, Withee, Medford and two locations in Marshfield. For more information, please visit
