The IBAT Education Foundation
As the philanthropic arm of the Independent
Bankers Association of Texas, the IBAT Education Foundation funds
initiatives with the power to help community bankers actively create a
more secure financial future for all Texans. Our focus is directed
toward financial literacy programs for consumers and bankers.
Foundation, a 501(c)3 not for profit organization, is guided by its own
Board made up of IBAT members. As we grow, the Board will grow and
always exemplify the partnering between community bankers and the
communities they serve by including civic leaders, philanthropists,
spouses, business leaders and others.
community bankers are seeking ways to be proactive in counteracting a
threat to the public's financial health - mounting consumer and
commercial debt, understanding how banks operate, and taking
responsibility for choices and financial decisions.
