Nominate Your Strong Child
Later this year the Bank will feature customers and members
of our communities who nominate a child who exemplifies strength through acts
of kindness, gracious giving of time or talents, or who has overcome health or
other obstacles, through its Strong Saver campaign.

Make Savings Rewarding
This program is structured to help facilitate strong savings, the linked PDF is an overview of program's details.
Your child will start with a Strong Saver Passbook Savings Account
, and will receive a one-time new account reward. As your child builds his or her savings, they can then use those Strong Saver Passbook funds to open a Strong Saver CD
(min. $500). Based on the amount of their deposit from their passbook into their new CD, they will be eligible to receive rewards at the end of the CD term. Upon renewal your child will have the opportunity to earn additional rewards.
Children who qualify for rewards will be rewarded for their diligent savings. Through this program children will be able to see their balances increase. After their rewards are issued, the funds they have received rewards on must remain on deposit to receive additional rewards on future deposits, building their savings further for their futures.
