First National Bank Bemidji Foundation

First National Bank Bemidji Foundation was established to assist in grant making to qualified nonprofit organizations within Bemidji and our surrounding community to help enhance, strengthen and improve the quality of life for area children and their families. The FNBB Foundation Board meets annually in the summer to review applications and make grants that agree with the mission of enhancing the lives of children.

Since the Foundation first started making grants in 1995, more than $1,000,000 in grants have been awarded.
