SIOUX FALLS— First PREMIER Bank and PREMIER Bankcard are helping the Sioux Falls YMCA with several initiatives including Leif Ericson Day Camp flood repairs, the “Fore the Kids” Golf Classic fundraiser, the Strong Kids annual giving campaign and general operating costs.
First PREMIER presented YMCA CEO Jeff Morgan with a $25,000 donation during the financial institution’s quarterly staff meeting in Sioux Falls. The event was attended by hundreds of First PREMIER Bank and PREMIER Bankcard employees.
“The YMCA and PREMIER have a shared mission of investing in the next generation and helping young people have a brighter future,” said First PREMIER Bank CEO Dana Dykhouse. “Our success as an organization is rooted in the success of our community and its future leaders.”
First PREMIER Bank and PREMIER Bankcard support more than 600 local organizations.
“Giving back is part of our culture,” said PREMIER Bankcard CEO Miles Beacom. “We not only give dollars, we also give our time. Our employees consistently give 30,000+ hours of volunteer time each year. We’re really proud of that.”
Since 1995, the founder, executive leadership and associates have donated $1.2 billion to South Dakota organizations.
