Our thoughts and prayers are with the communities affected by the devastation from Hurricane Harvey. While we have been in touch with our members in affected areas, we know it will take time—especially in heavily flooded areas—to properly assess the extent of the damage. IBAT and TBA, along with the Independent Community Bankers of America, American Bankers Association, Texas Department of Banking and Texas Department of Savings and Mortgage Lending, have established a fund to help banking families directly impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
The Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund is set up through the Texas Bankers Foundation. Click here to donate by credit card or check. Please note IBAT and TBA will absorb all credit card processing fees so that 100 percent of every dollar collected goes directly to the relief effort. The Texas Bankers Foundation is a 501(c)(3), and all corporate and personal contributions are tax deductible. Checks must be made payable to the Texas Bankers Foundation in order to be tax deductible, and please denote this is for the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. Thank you for your support of fellow bankers as they soon begin the difficult recovery process. Together we will recover and rebuild. God bless Texas community bankers and God bless Texas
