Jack Long Fontana Foundation of Hope
Mr. Jack Long is, as he says, “the happiest man in the world because his business is to help others.” A few years ago, Mr. Long, a resident of Fontana, won the California Powerball Lottery. He turned to his over 30-year banking partners at Citizens Business Bank and CitizensTrust to help him establish the Fontana Foundation of Hope, a nonprofit dedicated to helping children, seniors, and other persons in need.
“Citizens Business Bank has been supportive in supplying the Fontana Foundation of Hope with online banking, business accounts and a personal line of credit. My investments managed by CitizensTrust have been watched over diligently, helping my foundation grow with Investment Management Services and Directed Trustee Services. Donations to the Foundation come directly from earnings on my investments at CitizensTrust.”
