The accumulated funds are then donated to a chosen organization at the end of each month. Following the Bank’s contribution, they were approved for a matching grant through AFFN. The AFFN Matching Grant Program provides direct support to participating financial institutions, who determine the local need supporting troops and their families in U.S. Military communities worldwide.
