Student Banking

When students start to Dream Big with AmeriCU, we help start them on the road to financial success early in life. Students enroll by opening an AmeriCU Youth Savings Account and then AmeriCU employees visit the school to collect deposits! We make it fun & easy to start saving so students can form good habits, earn interest, participate in fun contests, and win prizes.

  • Students make deposits – right at school
  • AmeriCU employees on site at your school
  • Earn money for your PTO
  • Reading Rewards Program for students

Earn Money for Your School’s PTO

For every student who joins the Dream Big Student Banking program, AmeriCU will donate $15 to the school’s Parent-Teacher Organization (during a specified time period to be determined by the school, AmeriCU, and the PTO. Maximum donation amounts may apply).

Dream Big Reading Rewards

Reading is a great way to travel the country & explore the world – without leaving your town! AmeriCU supports our student bankers by encouraging reading, writing, and discussion. We offer three opportunities for students at participating schools to earn money for reading books and then writing about them. Students in grades Kindergarten through 12 can earn up to $10 ($2 per book) during our Fall, Winter and Summer Reading Programs.

Financial Literacy

We’re excited to be able to help offer Financial Literacy curriculum to area schools! Your students can use our interactive, informative, and engaging curriculum to learn about savings, money basics, budgeting, identity theft, credit, and more!

We also offer in-person financial literacy and wellness presentations for schools, organizations, clubs, and not-for-profits organizations. To learn more, contact Tab Rightmyre at 800.388.2000 ext. 6278 or at tabr@americu.org.
