Improving the Health & Welfare of Children
BankPlus is committed to the children of our state and supports organizations across Mississippi that seek to improve the health and welfare of children. BankPlus has partnerships with the following organizations that share this purpose:
Friends of Children’s Hospital
Friends of Children’s Hospital (Friends) is a nonprofit organization created to benefit Batson Children’s Hospital at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. BankPlus supports Friends fundraisers throughout the year, including Enchanted Evening, Presented by BankPlus and BankPlus Light-A-Light. Through a five-year commitment with Eli Manning, BankPlus helped raise approximately $2.9 million to construct and fund the Eli Manning Children’s Clinics at Batson Children’s Hospital. In addition to annual fundraising events, BankPlus supports Friends with the Friends of Children’s Hospital CheckCard, of which the proceeds directly benefit Friends of Children’s Hospital.
The Mississippi Children’s Museum
BankPlus is a founding sponsor of The Mississippi Children’s Museum, in the Children’s Inspirations Arts Exhibit within the museum’s Cultural Arts Gallery. The goal of the Mississippi Children's Museum is to empower and inspire all our state's children, regardless of their social, educational or economic background, to discover their potential through tapping their curiosity and creativity through hands-on and engaging exhibits and programs focusing on literacy, cultural arts, science & technology, health & nutrition, and Mississippi Heritage. In recognition of the bank’s ongoing commitment to the museum, all paper used within the Children’s Inspirations Art Exhibit will carry the BankPlus logo.

• Big Brothers, Big Sisters
• The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Mississippi
