FNCB Bank Donates $9,500 in Support of STEAM Programs

FNCB Bank, locally-based since 1910, has announced a $9,500 Pennsylvania Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) donation to the Howard Gardner MI Charter School in Scranton.

FNCB’s grant was used to support the Arts Alliance and STEAM Camp programs. Middle school students ventured into coding drones and designed a special coding course for kindergarten through second grade students. Students in K-2 participated in both in-school and after school programs entitled “Coding Around the World.”

Since 2010, FNCB has contributed just under $2,500,000 to local educational and scholarship organizations through the EITC initiative.

The support of the Howard Gardner School is part of FNCB’s larger Community Caring initiative. As a true, local community bank, FNCB Bank is making a difference through volunteerism, donations and outreach programs.
