Minnesota Business Coalition for Racial Equity supports First Independence Bank Twin Cities with launch of ‘ Million Deposit Challenge’

“We are at a pivotal historical point as there’s significant change occurring in the region, and we have an opportunity to build on the momentum. This extraordinary MBCRE initiative is part of that change, and it reflects the deep commitment from numerous Twin Cities institutions that believe in the success of First Independence Bank. The bank’s success strengthens the financial wellness of communities, the region and Minnesota, particularly marginalized, underbanked, or unbanked households and individuals,” said Senior Vice President and Twin Cities Regional Market President, Damon Jenkins

“After making my deposit, it reaffirmed to me the importance of Minority Deposit Institutions in our community,” said Tiffani Daniels, managing director for the MBCRE, “Deposits can make a physical impact on our communities immediately, increasing the lending capacity of the bank. That lending potential can help close the homeownership gap and empower local businesses.”

Experts indicate that supporting MDIs can be vital to a just and prosperous Minnesota with and for Black Minnesotans. Deposits can fund mortgage loans that help ease the homeownership gap. Deposits can also fund loans to support small businesses. Community investment is central to financial wellness – and First Independence Bank is dedicated to investing in the Twin Cities.

The MBCRE is encouraging businesses and individuals to get involved in the deposit challenge. Businesses can make deposits at one of the two Twin Cities FIB locations, while individuals may open personal accounts in-person or online at the bank’s website.

The $1 Million Deposit Challenge continues through Juneteenth 2023.
