FSG Bank Donates $10,000 To Support Teacher Development At Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy

Monday, August 22, 2016

FSG Bank, a division of Atlantic Capital Bank, NA announced a partnership with the Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy (CGLA).  In an effort to invest in the long term future of our local communities, FSG Bank is making a $10,000 donation to CGLA’s efforts in ongoing teacher training, a commitment that Dr. Elaine Swafford, Executive Director of the Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy, believes is crucial to the continued success of the school. 

“FSG Bank is committed to serving the communities in which we live and work.  We believe in partnering for impact by directing meaningful resources to help local organizations with a laser focus on one or more of our pillars of giving:  education, job creation and affordable housing. We also look for opportunities to actively engage our employees as volunteers. CGLA offers us that opportunity,” said Jeff Olingy, Director of Community Outreach at FSG Bank.

“We are thrilled to partner with FSG Bank on this very important effort in making an educational impact in Chattanooga. The importance of ongoing teacher training is at the forefront of our strategy,” said Dr. Swafford.  “It’s critical that our girls observe our teachers committed to ongoing instruction and in the educational success of our school. This we believe is a perfect scenario in which everyone wins.”
