LANCASTER, Pa. (April 12, 2022) -- Fulton Bank, a division of Fulton Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: FULT), today announced a $100,000 commitment to the African American Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey (AACCNJ).

  • The Village Program is an initiative that provides financial literacy training for low and moderate-income families in underserved communities.
  • Technical Assistance for Small Businesses helps entrepreneurs and minority businesses in need of micro loan funding for COVID-19/pandemic relief, recovery, and business expansion.

 

“Fulton is committed to helping individuals, families and businesses in underserved communities grow and prosper through training and education,” said Lou Lombardi, regional commercial executive for Fulton Bank in Greater Philadelphia and New Jersey. “We look forward to working with the Chamber over the next several years to build and maintain successful small businesses and vibrant neighborhoods in New Jersey.”

 

“The relationship forming between Fulton Bank and the African American Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey (AACCNJ) will provide mutual value for mutual benefit. As the businesses and individuals that the Chamber serves expand their financial literacy and build their businesses they become the clients and customers of the future for Fulton Bank,” said John E. Harmon, Sr., founder, president, and CEO, AACCNJ. “Those future customers will participate more fully in the economic mainstream strengthening the overall competitiveness of our state. The African American Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey is extremely excited to engage with Fulton Bank as we work together to build a stronger eco-system in underserved communities across New Jersey.”
