Since its inception in 2013, BTC Area Youth Benefit Corp. has had the privilege of supporting youth and youth activities within the BTC Bank service area, spanning from southeast Iowa to central Missouri. In the past seven years, our non-profit has contributed over $125,000 toward positive experiences and learning opportunities for local youth. Throughout the area, we have provided scholarships and helped fund trips to various leadership conferences and competitions, as well as education, athletic, fine-arts and agriculture-related programs and projects.
Our goal, as BTC AYBC, is to empower youth to become strong community leaders through active and engaged lifestyles. We believe the many programs and activities we have proudly supported have done just that for hundreds of young people in our area; and we look forward to empowering hundreds more. Of course, none of this would be possible without the generosity of our community.
In honor of Giving Tuesday, we are launching our 2nd Annual Funding Futures Campaign, which gives community members and local businesses a way to support our area youth in a simple, yet impactful way. We invite you to help us attain our goal of $18,000, which will allot $1,000 for youth in each of the 18 BTC Bank branch locations. The BTC Area Youth Benefit Corp. is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, therefore, your gift is tax deductible.
