BACF Donation Check 2021

Supporting Local

In conjunction with our “Mortgage That Gives Back” program, WCB donated $52,900 last December to local non-profits. For every home mortgage that closed in 2020, WCB pledged a $100 donation to a non-profit of the mortgage customer’s choice.  As a result of this promotion, the Blair Area Community Foundation (BACF) received a check for $37,600 that was distributed among 72 Washington County non-profits. In addition to the BACF donation, WCB also donated $4,000 that was distributed among 15 Burt County non-profits and $11,300 that was distributed among 43 Harrison County non-profits.
