Forward Foundation Supports Local Art Program with Donation to Jamestown Fine Arts Center

The Forward Foundation is honored to donate to the Jamestown Fine Arts Center. The $1,000 donation will help the organization continue its Arts After School program.

Arts After School is a creative after-school experience for students in grades 3 – 6 each school day from 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm. Students explore a wide range of visual arts and artists. Busing to The Arts Center and after-school snack are included.

“Our local Arts Center is a centerpiece of our local downtown,” Penny Steckler, Bank Forward employee and Forward Foundation volunteer, says. “The Arts Center’s dedication to our community and helping keep our youth involved with all the projects and classes they offer is a great service. I feel so happy and blessed that our Forward Foundation is here to help our communities move Forward by offering help with funding to keep these types of youth activities going.”

The Forward Foundation’s mission is to enhance the lives of children. Founded in 2012 and a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Forward Foundation serves children, their families, and organizations that benefit children in the thirteen communities served by Bank Forward, Insure Forward, Invest Forward, and Tax Forward exclusively. Administered solely by the employees of Bank, Insure, Invest, and Tax Forward, one hundred percent of contributions go to the children or organizations served by the Forward Foundation.
