Fifth Third Bank is pleased to announce the distribution of income for the Koboldt Charitable Trust this year.

Due to the generosity and love for the people of the City of Effingham, Virginia Koboldt set aside trust funds to help "alleviate human suffering." Virginia and her husband, Paul were lifelong residents of Effingham. Paul Koboldt held many positions, lastly being President of The First National Bank of Effingham, which is now Fifth Third Bank.

Mrs. Koboldt's intention was to "give back" to the people of Effingham for all the kindnesses shown to her and her family. This Trust has distributed more than $900,000 to many worthwhile organizations since 1997. There is no formal application however; the Trust Committee would like a copy of the organization's financial report, a list and brief synopsis of the programs offered by the organization and the intended use of the funds being requested.

The deadline for receiving applications is June 15, 2014. The distribution ceremony will be held at 10:00am on July 17th, 2014 at City Hall in the Council Room. If you have any questions please call Grant Bushue or Carol Rohr at Fifth Third Bank: 217-342-5700
