Thank You FPCB!

As part of the Georgia HEART Hospital Program, First Port City Bank is supplying $131, 207 dollars of financial support to Memorial Hospital and Manor.

First Port City Bank is a strong believer in its communities and in the power of giving back. “We have a great respect for Memorial Hospital and Manor and the changes that are occurring,” said Scott Ewing, President of FPCB. “They work tirelessly to provide quality healthcare to our community and we are pleased to know that our gift will help this organization to thrive. I am also appreciative to our FPCB directors who have participated in this program individually. “

Memorial Hospital and Manor is grateful for the continued support through the Georgia Heart Program, “First Port City Bank leads our contributions from “C” Corporations and we are thankful for their vote of confidence,” says Jim Lambert

The Georgia Rural Hospital Tax Credit enables Georgia businesses and taxpayers to redirect their Georgia income tax liability to help support these qualified hospitals. Through this rural hospital tax credit program, a “C” Corporation or trust shall be allowed a 100% Georgia income tax credit for contributions to rural hospitals equal to the amount of the contribution, or 75 percent of the corporation’s or trust’s income tax liability, whichever is less.

 

Additionally, the IRS recently issued guidance confirming that for federal income tax purposes, “C” corporations can deduct rural hospital tax credit contributions as ordinary and necessary business expenses.

If you would like more information as to how this program can be beneficial to your business, please contact Lauren Harrell at Memorial Hospital and Manor at 229.243.6115.

Shining Star!

And the winner is…… Jan Pope!!

Congratulations to our December 2018 Shining Star Award Winner Jan Pope, Cash Posting Manager.
