Fifth Third Foundation Donates $100,000 to Assist with Tornado Relief

CINCINNATI – Fifth Third Foundation contributed $100,000 to support relief efforts for those impacted by tornadoes in the Dayton and Greater Indianapolis areas.

Greg Carmichael, chairman, president and CEO of Fifth Third Bancorp, said the donation to the American Red Cross represents our commitment to improving lives in the communities we serve.

"Disasters such as the recent tornadoes in the Dayton and Greater Indianapolis areas affect the communities that many of our customers and employees call home,” Carmichael said. “Through our financial donations, we are dedicated to helping them recover.”

A special Fifth Third microsite has been created to make it easy for employees, customers and communities to contribute to this effort. You can find the site here, along with information on how to give.

To direct contributions specifically to relief efforts in the Dayton and Greater Indianapolis areas, select the Midwest Tornadoes and Floods fund on the site. Gifts are tax-deductible. People also may contribute to the cause through any Fifth Third banking center across the Bank’s 10-state footprint. Donors can direct their gifts to the Fifth Third Bank Disaster Relief Account; money will go to the Midwest Tornadoes and Floods fund of the American Red Cross.
