Denver, CO (January 2, 2019) –Sunflower Bank’s annual signature ABC Program has raised over $1.2 million since 2001 for local schools and students in its Sunflower Bank and First National 1870 communities. The ABC Program runs January 1 through March 31, 2019 and supports approximately 300 schools across Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, New Mexico and Texas. Recipients use the ABC Program funds for much needed educational supplies, equipment and books.
“We believe in solving problems and making possibilities a reality for our customers and our communities,” said Mollie Carter, Chairman of Sunflower Bank. “In 2001 we recognized that Sunflower Bank could meet an important need by helping provide funds to our local schools and motivate students for scholastic achievement. This is why we continue to expand the ABC Program each year through outreach to new schools and communities.”
Based on community participation during the campaign, the bank provides money to benefit local K-12 students and their schools by making ABC Program donations based on every Spend & Sign & Save checking and savings account package opened and registered to a participating school, and through “Cash for Swipes” when school-registered debit cards are used for signature transactions.
In addition, Sunflower Bank and First National 1870 branches invite all students to bring their report cards to their local branch for a chance to earn up to $100 for their As. Five report card winners per branch are chosen from entries by students. This year registered schools receive a matching donation if one of their student’s report cards are chosen.
“ABC donations were used to purchase supplies for ‘crisis kits’ for classrooms and district vehicles, which can save lives in the event of an emergency. Funds were also used for after school care, milk for children, and other worthwhile programs,” stated John Thissen, USD 489 Superintendent in Hays, Kansas.
