Methodist Children’s Home (MCH) has been named a Charity Champion by The First National Bank – McGregor.
For the next 12 months, MCH will be the focus of a marketing campaign funded by the bank, which launched the Charity Champions initiative to commemorate its 125th anniversary in 2014 and to celebrate and give back to the community. Nonprofits are nominated for the award and are voted on by the employees and board of the bank. Just six organizations are chosen as Charity Champions each year.
Winners are notified of their selection and the bank reveals the organization with an on-field presentation during a Baylor football game. MCH President/CEO Tim Brown received the award on Saturday, Sept. 12 during Baylor’s home-opener against Lamar while a video presentation was shown on the McLane Stadium jumbotron.
“It is an honor for Methodist Children’s Home to be selected as the first Charity Champion of the 2015 season, especially as we commemorate our 125th anniversary of offering hope to children, youth and families," said Brown. “Whether it is through our residential youth programs or our Family Outreach offices providing valuable in-home and community based services, MCH is committed to building stronger and healthier families.”
The bank also features the winning organization through press releases, newspaper ads and television commercials. In addition to the marketing awareness, MCH’s staff and leadership team will have the opportunity to participate in an executive training program that is also funded by the bank. Led by 360 Solutions, a global leadership and organizational training company, trainees will examine their organization's long-term strategy, the roles and responsibilities of the teams and evaluate the skills needed to be a successful nonprofit organization.
“Methodist Children's Home has been a champion for children, teens and families for many, many years,” said David Littlewood, president, The First National Bank. “With a long and well-respected history in Central Texas, the bank is honored to welcome MCH into the Charity Champion family."
