The First Horizon Foundation continues its partnership with Big Brother Big Sisters and views mentoring as essential in empowering Palm Beach and Martin County kids to reach their brightest future. The Foundation is providing resources and support for “Bigs” and “Littles” to ensure safe and research based mentoring programs. Kids build social capital through a variety of one-to-one mentoring experiences in one of Big Brothers Big Sisters ten programs, whether in school, at home, or in the community. Over 570 mentors stayed committed to “Littles” in 2020, thanks to supporters like First Horizon Foundation who remained dedicated to the mission. Our sincere thanks to the First Horizon Foundation and Josh Folds for awarding Big Brothers Big Sisters of Palm Beach and Martin Counties a $10,000 grant to empower youth with a plan to graduate and a mentor for a lifetime. Josh is leading Small Business, Business Banking, Merchant Services and SBA for First Horizon Bank and is very active in the South Florida community including serving on the Board of Trustees for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Palm Beach and Martin Counties.
