Portland-Vancouver, OR-WA (1888PressRelease) October 04, 2011 - The Fremont Bank Foundation was recently honored by Project Second Chance (PSC) with the Margaret Lesher Memorial Award. PSC is the adult literacy program of the Contra Costa County Library that provides adults with low literacy skills the opportunity to read, write and spell through individual tutoring from qualified volunteers. The award recognizes individuals and organizations for their continued support of PSC's programs.



PSC first honored the Fremont Bank Foundation in 2004 with the Margaret Lesher Memorial Award. This is the first time in PSC's history where an organization has been honored with the award twice.



"One of the key factors that drives our ongoing support for Project Second Chance is that it's truly a community based program that provides people with tools that will help them to help themselves for the rest of their lives," said Fremont Bank President Andy Mastorakis. "The Fremont Bank Foundation is honored to receive this award and to continue to support Contra Costa Library's Project Second Chance."



"Fremont Bank Foundation's dedication to support the Contra Costa County Library's efforts to eliminate adult illiteracy has been remarkable and commendable," said PSC President Terry Stinnett. "Project Second Chance has helped thousands of adults lead new and richer lives with skills many of us take for granted. We are thankful to them and look forward to their ongoing support to help better the lives of those in our community."



Fremont Bank Foundation has been a long-time supporter of PSC, and has been the lead sponsor of PSC's annual fundraising dinner, "The Bookies." The Foundation also provides assistance for "The Bookies" by selling tickets and providing credit card processing.



About Fremont Bank Foundation

Philanthropy is a key aspect of Fremont Bank's community relations efforts. The majority of our charitable giving is made through the continuing work and contributions of the Fremont Bank Foundation (FBF). Established in 1995 under the direction of Fremont Bank's late founder, Morris Hyman, and his wife, Alvirda, FBF is an independent, private, grant making foundation that is solely funded by Fremont Bank. Formed with an initial investment of $20,000, the Foundation now receives a significant percentage of Fremont Bank's pre-tax income each year. These substantial funds allow us to continuously invest in local nonprofit organizations for the implementation of their extraordinary visions.
