Community Crusaders: Katherine Crosby
Chariman of the Board/ Fidelity Bank
Katie Crosby enjoys serving communities through commitments of time, expertise, and financial support. As Board Chair of Fidelity Bank, she’s proud of the support Fidelity provides within the communities it serves. This month, Fidelity will participate in a Habitat for Humanity women’s build. The bank has long provided loan servicing to Habitat homeowners and has a wonderful synergy with the organization.
In addition to her work with Fidelity, Crosby serves the community as a board member of LCMC Health, board president of WYES, and as Vice Chair of the board at Poydras Home. Her fulfilling involvement with GNOF’s Impact 100 has provided an opportunity to learn more about area nonprofits and meet other women committed to community improvement.
“When my children were younger and my time more flexible, I enjoyed working on fundraisers for the camaraderie. Now I enjoy working with organizations on strategy and vision,” says Crosby. A New Orleans native, Crosby is Past President of the Junior League of New Orleans and was named to New Orleans Magazine’s Top 10 Female Achievers in 2011.
