Annual Charity Golf Tournament

FCB's 2020 Charity Fundraising

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, First Choice Bank made the difficult decision to cancel its 2020 Annual Charity Golf Tournament (full letter here). Although we were not able to gather in person this year, there was still a critical need to raise money to support our 18 charitable organizations in need, as these groups are facing even higher demand for services in these unprecedented times.

We are proud to report a successful online fundraising effort, with a total of $60,000 collected and given to the charities below! Every dollar donated was matched by both the Bank and Much in Given Foundation, tripling the money collected. We are amazed at the generosity of our clients, employees, directors and friends and are truly grateful for everyone helping those most in need right now.  

First Choice Press Release- 2020 Charity Fundraising

Thank you for being part of the community and making a positive difference in the lives of those who need it most. We thank you for your support of this year's charities and look forward to golfing with you again at our tournament next year.

  • This Year's Charities

    This year, we identified 18 local nonprofit organizations to benefit from our fundraising activities. These carefully selected groups provide critical services that are more important than ever as our communities face hardship due to the pandemic, which has amplified the vulnerability of people already experiencing extreme poverty, homelessness, isolation and hunger. Please click the logos below to find out more about each organization and how they are helping our communities.

  • Past Events

    For the last 9 years, First Choice Bank’s Annual Charity Golf Tournament has supported charitable organizations in our local communities that help those most in need. Each year, our charities have been fortunate enough to receive even greater support from our sponsors and donors than the year before. After our last event in October 2019, a record-high $130,000 was donated by the Bank and the Much is Given Foundation to the selected 18 non-profit organizations throughout Southern California (press release).

    One of First Choice Bank’s core beliefs is to always look for opportunities to make a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work, not because it is required, but because it is the right thing to do. We are grateful for the success of previous years' events and, despite the obstacles put into our path this year, we were still able to support many charitable organizations assisting those most in need right now. We look forward to making an even bigger impact in 2021!
