Fifth Third Foundation

Despite a challenging economic environment, the Fifth Third Foundation kept flying last year, working hard to provide uplifting support to charitable entities throughout Fifth Third’s market areas. Led by Vice President Heidi B. Jark, the Fifth Third Foundation’s resources were leveraged to provide the maximum impact for the organizations that needed them most.

The Fifth Third Foundation made over 200 grants last year to deserving organizations which work constantly to give hope to the people they serve. The grants represented nearly $3.4 million in community support of education, health and human services, community development and arts and culture.

In addition to providing crucial grant funding, the Fifth Third Foundation Office also advises not-for-profit organizations on ways to accomplish their missions in the most efficient and effective ways possible. Through site visits, grant writing assistance and suggestions for additional funding sources, the Foundation works behind the scenes to make a positive difference.
