First Commonwealth Bank is supporting the Chamber Foundation’s efforts to build the future workforce. The financial institution recently made a $1,000 donation to support programming for local school students. The Foundation coordinates a variety of programs to help the area’s young people understand the career opportunities that exist in the region, and the skills they will need to successful in the workplace. 

Of particular interest to First Commonwealth is the Foundation’s efforts to strengthen financial literacy in students. Employers often express concern that some employees don’t understand basic budgeting and struggle to manage their personal finances. The Chamber works with school districts to help set a baseline among young people so that they can be more successful citizens and employees in the future.  

First Commonwealth Bank is based in Indiana, Pennsylvania with a local branch at 315 Mill Street in Danville.
