Univest Financial® Presents the Fé Foundation with $2,500
September 2, 2021 – Univest Financial recently presented the Fé Foundation with a check for $2,500 earned through the Lehigh Valley IronPigs “Double Plays Pay” sponsorship. Each time the IronPigs made a double play, Univest provided a $25 donation to the Fé Foundation. The Fé Foundation has been delivering educational and community development programs of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of the Lehigh Valley since 2009. The foundation’s leading program, Futuros Empresarios, or FE, has been bringing together students, university faculties, and local businesses and organizations in an attempt to introduce comprehensive life skills and entrepreneurial training to high school students of the Lehigh Valley.
Univest Financial has participated in the IronPigs “Double Plays Pay” sponsorship since 2009 helping a different nonprofit each year including Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels of Lehigh County, Lehigh Valley Zoo, Boys & Girls Club of Allentown, Big Brothers Big Sisters Lehigh Valley, Valley Youth House, The Fund to Benefit Children & Youth and the Community Music School.
Univest supports a variety of nonprofit organizations throughout its service area of southeastern and central Pennsylvania. In 2020, Univest’s Committed To Local philanthropic giving program made contributions totaling more than $1.9 million dollars to support groups that make a positive difference in the communities it serves.
