ABC Program for Education
Supporting Education All Year Long
At Sunflower Bank and First National 1870, we believe in the power of civic engagement and creating possibility together with our communities. Funding education and scholastic achievement is one of the most important ways we do this.
At the core of every community lies its school system. Schools provide educational opportunities, jobs and enhance economic development. That’s why we give money and volunteer support to schools including through the ABC Program for Education.
Since 2001, our ABC Program has raised over $1.6 million for local schools and students.
“The ABC Program is an important way that we partner with local educational and financial literacy initiatives everywhere we serve, providing much-needed support to local schools and encouraging academic achievement in our youth is one way we create possibility for our communities.”
How It Works
Schools and students benefit every time bank customers use their school-registered bank debit cards to make everyday purchases. The bank will donate 2¢1 to participating schools year-round per qualifying debit card transaction. Customers can also contribute by opening new accounts. Each time an Elevation Checking account is opened with a participating school designated, the bank will donate $5 to the school.3
Dollars donated are determined by the level of support provided by participating schools and the parents and friends of each school. The more Sunflower Bank and First National 1870 customers that participate, the larger the donation total becomes.
In addition, during specified periods during the year, Sunflower Bank and First National 1870 branches will invite K-12 grade students to bring in their most recent report card to their local branch for a chance to earn up to $100 for their As.2 Participating schools will earn a matching donation if the student attends their school and wins the report card drawing.
