Since 1864 First Horizon, First Tennessee and FTN Financial have been committed to the customers and communities we serve. In addition to providing financial services and solutions, we demonstrate that commitment by investing in our communities. We provide more than 4,000 jobs throughout our footprint, making a substantial economic impact on local economies. As a company and as individuals, we are committed to ensuring that our communities are great places to live and work. We help realize that commitment through the private First Tennessee Foundation which we established in 1993 to support nonprofit organizations in the communities we serve. Since its founding, we have granted more than $65 million to meet community needs. We also donate time, energy and expertise through our employee volunteer program. We support the wide array of nonprofit organizations our employees are passionate about through leadership grants. We also make matching gifts to nonprofits our employees support. And we are strategically committed to diversity in our workforce, workplace and marketplace.
Serving Our Communities
Supporting our communities has been part of how we define our company since the 1800's, when a lone bookkeeper, Charles Q. Harris, single-handedly kept our bank open to serve customers and distribute relief funds during the Yellow Fever epidemic in Memphis. Today we reflect that tradition through First Tennessee Volunteers, encouraging employees to strengthen our communities by donating time, talent and professional expertise to nonprofit organizations. We offer employees leadership grants and matching gifts through the First Tennessee Foundation to further reward organizations they are involved with.
Investing in Our Communities
For more than 150 years we have strengthened communities by collaborating with nonprofit, community development and civic partners to meet community needs, encourage growth and support sustainability. We leverage the First Tennessee Foundation, First Tennessee Housing Corp. and First Tennessee New Markets Corp. along with other creative solutions to foster affordable housing, services for underserved communities, community revitalization, small business economic development and financial literacy.
