Evanston-based First Bank & Trust says it’s extending its campaign to make donations to local nonprofit groups for every “like” the bank receives on its Facebook page.

The campaign started last August and now has been extended to run through next May.

“First Bank & Trust is dedicated to supporting non-profits in our community, and we feel this promotion is a wonderful way of promoting worthy causes,” said the bank’s marketing manager, Michael Yohanan.

“We were amazed at how many people in our community came forward to support their favorite non-profit organizations by liking our Facebook page, and the non-profits were ecstatic to not only receive the funds, but also to increase their visibility,” Yohanan added.

Over the next few months, First Bank & Trust will donate money to:

  • The McGaw YMCA in January.
  • The Shorefront Legacy Center in February.
  • The Woman’s Club of Evanston in March.
  • Citizens’ Greener Evanston in April.
  • Curt’s Cafe in May

Donations will be made each month, to a maximum of $500.
