Who We Are


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.

The 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.

Texas 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.
