LCNB Contributions Program
 
Mission
 
LCNB Strives to insure the strength and vitality of our communities through our charitable contributions program. We seek to build strong partnerships and lasting value in our communities by supporting organizations that:
  • Improve educational and economic opportunities of low and moderate-income individuals and families
  • Enhance the cultural and artistic life of the communities in which we live and work by supporting organizations that provide cultural and artistic opportunities to all our citizens regardless of race, religion, or income level
Funding Priorities
 
Our charitable giving is focused primarily on organizations that provide meaningful programs that benefit people within LCNB's market area. LCNB is committed to working in partnership with our employees to strengthen our communities. We consider employee involvement in evaluating contribution requests, and we support volunteer involvement by our employees in our communities. The following is a listing of our priorities for funding:
  •  
  • Affordable housing for low/moderate income individuals and families
  • Community services targeted to low/moderate income individuals
  • To support though United Way those organizations that meet the health and human service needs of our communities
  • Arts and cultural organizations that make a contribution to the overall quality of life in our communities
  • Educational programs that address the needs of low/moderate income individuals or teach financial subjects such as good savings and credit practices
  •
