About the Liz Nix Fundraiser

Last May, First Commerce launched a fundraiser to honor the memory of Liz Nix, a passionate advocate for animal welfare and mother of Rodney Nix, member of FCCU’s Nashville Advisory Council. More than $4,000 was raised in her honor to support Hearts to Homes Humane Society in Nashville, Ga.

Due to the success and positive response, First Commerce is expanding its efforts this year to support local animal rescue organizations in multiple markets, including our Georgia markets: Nashville, Thomasville and Valdosta, and our Tallahassee, Florida market. Our goal is to raise $15,000 this year!

The Liz Nix Fundraiser for Animal Rescue will run during National Pet Month Monday, May 1 – Wednesday, May 31.

Ways to Help

Stop in to one of our Financial Centers and purchase an insulated grocery tote. You can buy one for $8 or two for $15. 100% of the proceeds will go to the local Humane Society.
Next time you visit one of our Financial Centers, you can purchase a yellow paper paw ($5 minimum donation), share a message or a name on the paw, and it will be proudly displayed.
Look for our designated change jars in local establishments and drop your change! We are partnering with local pet-loving businesses in each market, who will have a change jar on display. Drop your change, and it will help us reach our goal!
In select markets, we will have a hot dog cookout at one of our financial centers. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details!
