SALINA — Since 2001, Sunflower Bank has been raising money for local schools and students annually through its ABC program. Total donations since the program began are over $934,000. Last year the program included almost 300 schools across Colorado, Kansas, and Missouri and raised $113,945.
When asked why the ABC Program and supporting their community schools is so important, Mollie Carter, president and chief executive officer of Sunflower Bank replied, “Creating possibility in our communities is the heart of our bank and nothing holds more possibility than education for our young people who will one day lead our communities for the next generation. The ABC program reflects our culture and our commitment.”
This year’s program is expected to exceed $1,000,000 in total donations since its inception 15 years ago. Beginning Jan. 1 through March 31, 2016, money will be raised for the benefit of education through the following:
• $50 to a registered school for every Spend & Sign & Save checking account that is opened and another $50 to the new account owner;
• 5 cents for each debit card swipe when the ‘credit’ button is used and the card is registered to a participating school;
• $10 for every ‘A’ on a student’s report card if their card is one of five cards drawn at every local branch, plus a matching donation for their school.
