PNC donates $5,000 for Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure stop in Indianapolis

PNC Bank recently donated $5,000 for the Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure team’s work in Indianapolis this week in conjunction with the Fuller Center for Housing Central Indiana.

Ann Sumner, Vice President and Community Consultant in Community Development with PNC Bank, and a PNC branch manager from the Fountain Square area will visit the site of Wednesday’s project, a renovation not far from Fountain Square.

Fountain Square was the site of last year’s Millard Fuller Legacy Build, which got a boost from a $10,000 donation by PNC. Sumner also visited that site last year to see PNC’s donation at work.

“Last year was a fantastic experience,” Sumner said of visiting the Legacy Build. “We were out in the field and so happy to see how the funds were used.”

"When I first communicated with Ann Sumner, I knew right away that the goals of the PNC Bank Foundation were in line with our commitment to service," said Beverly Black, The Fuller Center’s Director of Donor Development. "She is hands-on and wants to be involved in partnerships, not transactional relationships that merely exchange donations with nonprofits with no real involvement on the impact of financial contributions.

"She has come to our work sites, met the families we serve, and has seen first hand the stewardship we exercise with our donations. She is a dynamic representative to communities she serves, and I am sure PNC is proud to have her talent and passion at work for them in the field."

PNC makes a point of corporate responsibility.

“Affordable housing is one of our priorities,” Sumner said. “Affordable housing, education and economic development are our three priorities.”

"Our partnership with PNC has allowed us to serve several families through our mission to transform  communities by moving low-income families out of poverty housing living conditions," Black said.

The Fuller Center for Housing expresses its gratitude for PNC’s support of our work of partnering with families to provide simple, decent housing.
