The ABC Program Supporting Education Completes its 17th Year with Total Donations over $1.2 Million
 
In May 2018, schools and students received a total of $99,760 in grants from the ABC Program that supports education in Sunflower Bank and First National 1870’s communities. Since the start of the ABC Program in 2001, Sunflower Bank has given away more than $1,238,000 in support of education.  $1,235 of the funds are being given to students and schools in Longmont. 

“We hear every year from schools that the ABC Program provides much needed support to the schools,” said Mollie Carter, Chairman of Sunflower Bank. Sunflower Bank is committed to making an impact on our communities for today, tomorrow, and life. There is no better way to do that than to contribute to the education of our youth.”

From January 2 through March 31, 2018, new and current bank customers raised money for their K-12 school of choice by opening a Spend & Sign & Save account or swiping their debit card. In addition, the “Pay for A’s” drawing was open to all K-12 students who brought report cards to a local branch, no banking relationship necessary. Five report cards were drawn at each branch, and the student winners receive $10 for every “A” up to $100.

Plans are underway to bring the ABC Program back to Sunflower Bank and First National 1870 for an 18th year. Visit a local branch, SunflowerBank.com or FirstNational1870.com to learn more about the bank’s support for its communities.
