"We're grateful for the work these nonprofit organizations do in our communities year-round," said Hattie Hyman Hughes, president of Fremont Bank Foundation and a senior vice president of Fremont Bank. "I trust that they will put our holiday grants to great use again this year and will make the season a little brighter for many Bay Area children and their families."

Hyman Hughes added that as organizations, individuals and businesses become clients of Fremont Bank, more funds become available for communities. "By becoming a customer of the bank, you also become a true participant in our growing philanthropic activity," she said. In 2007 Fremont Bank Foundation and Fremont Bank have given more than $2 million to charitable non-profits, civic projects, educational institutions and other community organizations in the form of grants, commitments and donations. Fremont Bank earmarks five percent of its profits for use by the foundation, and through a corporate giving program.
