Your Everyday Transaction Help Support our Troops

$1 will be donated to Operation Homefront for every qualifying transaction made using Zelle®, found within the First Security mobile banking app and online banking experience, now through Oct. 1st.

First Security Bank and Trust is proud to announce a simple way for you to have a big impact. Between August 1 and October 1, 2020, each qualifying transaction made using Zelle in the First Security mobile app or online banking experience will result in a $1 charitable donation to Operation Homefront.

Here’s how it works:

  • Using the First Security mobile app or online banking experience, add a new contact and send that person at least $5 using Zelle. This is considered a “qualifying transaction.”
  • For each qualifying transaction, Fiserv will donate $1 to Operation Homefront up to a total of $25,000.

When you make a qualifying transaction using Zelle, you’re automatically supporting Operation Homefront, which provides services to active duty, wounded, and veteran U.S. Military members and their families through three core program focus areas:

  1.     Relief
    • Short-Term and Critical Assistance Programs
    • Emergency Financial Assistance
    • Rent-free Transitional Housing Villages for wounded warriors 
  1.     Resilience
    • Long-Term Stability Programs 
    • Mortgage-Free Homes (Homes on the Homefront) 
    • Caregiver Support (Hearts of Valor) 
  1.     Recurring
