TrustmarkCompany Celebrates 125 Years of Service with Giving Initiative
Trustmark celebrated its 125th anniversary by announcing the results for the 125 Years of Giving initiative on Facebook. The initiative donated $125,000 total with $25,000 distributed among the five states in Trustmark’s footprint, which include Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas. Three local nonprofit organizations in each market shared in a total of the $25,000.
“Supporting our communities has been a corporate philosophy for Trustmark since our company’s inception in 1889,” said Jerry Host, CEO of Trustmark. “Our 125 Years of Giving initiative was designed to help us continue that philosophy and to also provide the public an opportunity to help us celebrate our 125 years of service by being a part of the $125,000 gifting to community organizations in our markets.”
The public helped determine how much these selected nonprofit organizations received by “liking” the organization of their choice on Facebook. The level of donations given to each of the three organizations was determined by the number of “likes” received on the company’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/TrustmarkBank. The organization with the most “likes” in each state received $15,000. The organization with the second most “likes” received $7,500, and with the third most “likes” received $2,500.
