A donation made in the spirit of Community is contributing toward a health care legacy that will impact generations far into the future.
First International Bank & Trust (FIBT) recently donated $50,000 to Trinity Health Foundation’s Capital Campaign in support of the new medical complex currently under construction. The hospital and medical facility are projected to open Spring 2023 and will cost an estimated $500 million. To contribute to the cause, the Trinity Health Foundation has committed to raise $15 million through corporate and private donations throughout the region.
“One of our main bank values is to leave a mark on our communities. Supporting the efforts of the Trinity Health Foundation is a great way for us to help impact Minot and the surrounding area,” said John Drady, First International Bank & Trust central market president. “FIBT is passionate about funding projects that create and sustain a strong community base. I can’t imagine a better way to do that than by partnering with Trinity and contributing to the health and wellness of our community members.”
“First International Bank & Trust’s continued partnership with Trinity Health Foundation is a testament to their commitment to Minot and the residents living throughout the 20-county region we serve,” Trinity Health Foundation Director, Dusty Zimmerman, said. “We are so grateful to FIBT and their generous $50,000 contribution will kickstart the $15 million Capital Campaign we are undertaking. Our organizations share a deep-rooted legacy that speaks to North Dakota values and we are proud to continue that partnership.”
