In July of 2018, Availa Bank was approached to be a major funding partner by the Financial Literacy Council of Greater Hamilton County (FLCGHC) for a new initiative impacting Hamilton County youth. The request was to provide assistance and funding of a 529 Savings Plan to help the students of Hamilton County further their education upon graduation from high school. The Board and leadership of Availa Bank offered unanimous support for the plan and chose to provide funding through the Availa Foundation.

The FLCGHC and Availa Foundation decided to name the program Availa Kares. The name Availa Kares and the unusual spelling of the word care was selected to reflect the focus of the project; which is to help the kids. We are a proud sponsor of the Financial Literacy Council of Greater Hamilton County’s 529 Plan to help the students of Hamilton County further their education.

The Availa Foundation is a wholly-owned affiliate of Availa Bank. The foundation’s mission is to support the various local causes in the communities that the bank serves. The bank and foundation have a great desire to help the youth of the communities that Availa Bank serves. Over the years, the Availa Foundation has contributed over 2.8 million dollars to local communities and their worthwhile causes. It is with great pride that Availa Bank serves as not only a community bank but, as a source of strength and support for communities as well. The board and staff at Availa Bank believe strongly in their communities and that is reflected in their donations of time and money to the communities in which they live and work.
