Tina's Take

  • Three Reasons You’re Not Achieving Your Leadership Goals

    Sep 14, 2018
    Tina Giorgio: Vince Lombardi had it right when he stated that, “Leaders aren’t born, they are made.” Leadership is a process. And, like any process it begins by envisioning a desired outcome and creating a framework of the steps to achieve that outcome. Sometimes there are real obstacles that prevent us from achieving our goals. By conducting a personal evaluation, we can often identify and address things that are standing in our way.
  • 3-2-1 We Have Contactless!

    Jul 30, 2018
    Tina Giorgio: Contactless transactions include everything from flashing your watch at the point-of-sale to paying for your groceries, via your refrigerator. As “smart” devices get even smarter and more prevalent, payment has become part of their foundational fabric.
  • The Dawn of Artificial Intelligence

    May 30, 2018
    Tina Giorgio: With so many possible applications, it’s hard to predict the path that artificial intelligence will follow. In her latest blog post, ICBA Bancard President and CEO Tina Giorgio examines present-day use cases to see where things are heading.

ICBA Convention Attendees Donate to Cause Supporting Homeless Las Vegas Youth

ICBA Bancard Fund Matching Brings Donation Tally to Over $11K

Washington, D.C. (March 27, 2018)—The Independent Community Bankers of America® (ICBA) today announced that its partnership with Project 150 raised more than $11,000 during the ICBA Community Banking LIVE® national convention from March 13-17 in Las Vegas. The generous donations were made by community bankers attending the ICBA convention, along with a matching contribution from ICBA’s payments services subsidiary, ICBA Bancard, and its partner, FIS. The initiative to support underprivileged high school students in Las Vegas also collected more than 800 high-demand items, including school supplies, personal toiletries and clothing.

Project 150 is a non-profit dedicated to helping local homeless, displaced, and disadvantaged high school students graduate from high school through the provision of gently used clothes, nonperishable food, school supplies, and other personal necessities.

“Community bankers are known for their community outreach, so when ICBA Bancard was approached about using our Charitable Giving platform to assist with online donations, we were thrilled to lend our support to this worthwhile cause,” ICBA Bancard President and CEO Tina Giorgio said. “The fact that we were able to use a feature within the online portal to create a charitable matching campaign was rewarding and a testament to how far ICBA Bancard has come, but more importantly, it facilitated one more way to support community banks and their spirit of giving.”

Americans last year donated roughly $390 billion to charitable causes, yet only 7 percent of payments were made online, according to the Giving USA Annual Report on Philanthropy. The Charitable Giving platform, powered by FIS, provides an opportunity to move these to digital (or electronic) transactions.

ICBA Bancard clients that sign up for the easy-to-use online portal have access to one-click reporting, offering greater efficiency and transparency in the payments process. ICBA Bancard also provides turnkey marketing materials to help promote the giving platform to current and prospective cardholders.

“It was an honor to work alongside community bankers in support of our nation’s at-risk youth, helping ensure these promising students fulfill their potential,” said Meli Pulido, executive director at Project 150. “These contributions will be put to good use as we work to address the serious plight of homelessness in the United States.”
