Sunflower Bank raised $102,363 for schools and students this year in Kansas, Colorado, and Missouri, bringing its 16-year total to over $1,139,000.
More than $6,100 of the funds raised this year are being donated to schools and students in Great Bend and Ellinwood.
“This year we are celebrating both our 125th anniversary as a bank and the 16th anniversary of our ABC Program,” said Mollie Carter, president and CEO of Sunflower Bank. “We have a long and successful history, and we have made it our mission to create possibility for the communities we serve.
“This is why we initiated the ABC Program in 2001 to help provide needed resources for the schools and students in our communities,” Carter said. “For 125 years, we have strived to make a positive impact and we plan to continue this tradition in the many years to come.”
Beginning Jan. 1 through March 31, new and current customers raised money for their K-12 school of choice by opening a Spend & Sign & Save account or swiping their debit card. Students scored with $10 for every A on their report card if their name was one of five drawn at every branch.
Sunflower Bank plans to bring the ABC Program back for a 17th year. For more information, visit a local Sunflower Bank branch or SunflowerBank.com .
