Sponsor Profile featuring Jon Scott

MARKET President | First Interstate Bank | $25,000 Sponsor

Center Presents sponsors are local businesses who provide annual cash contributions and in-kind trade to make programming opportunities at The Center possible. It's with their support that we are able to enrich the Jackson Hole community with the cultural, artist and educational events that occur on our campus every year.

How does First Interstate Bank give back to the community and why?
We take 2% of our pre-tax profits, contribute it to the FIB Foundation who in turn donates it back to the non-profits in our community. The First Interstate Foundation is celebrating its 25th year this year and they have given out over $20 million over those 25 years. On top of that, the Foundation donates dollars in exchange for hours that our employees volunteer & they match dollar for dollar gifts up to $5k per employee per year.
