Savings Makes Sense

Our Savings Makes Sense, School Banking Program, is designed to teach students the importance of banking, economics and finance. Students learn how to save money as well as the importance money has in our society. Enrolled students, become actively involved in the program by depositing funds at school during “banking day” into a statement savings account established at Country Bank.

Each participating school has a specially designed banking booth to serve as the “branch.” Students, under the guidance of bank representatives, perform the operation of accepting deposits on designated banking days.

Because the account is a real statement savings account, students can also make deposits or withdrawals at any Country Bank branch during normal business hours. Withdrawals are not allowed at school.

In addition to learning valuable lessons on saving money, enrolled students will also be rewarded for doing so. Students receive an incentive after every sixth banking day.

We are proud to have 29 schools participate in this program.
