Carolina Trust will be providing banking services for the students at River Oaks Elementary School and Seaside Elementary School through our In-School Banking program this year. Through this program, we hope to teach young students about saving and budgeting.
Youth financial education is important to Carolina Trust, and we want to encourage youth to set financial goals and then celebrate with them when those goals are achieved. As an incentive to participating in In-School Banking, we host a $100 In-School Banking contest. Click here for the official contest rules.
Currently, Carolina Trust plans to visit each school once monthly to serve as an on-site “branch” for student deposits. In order to accomplish this, we do need participating students to have an open Goal Club savings account. Click here for more information about our Goal Club Youth Savings account, and how to open an account today.
Carolina Trust Federal Credit Union has partnered with River Oaks Elementary School and Seaside Elementary School to offer an In-School Banking program for students. Each month, a Carolina Trust representative will visit the schools to collect Goal Club savings account deposits. We’ll accept deposits big and small – there is no minimum amount required to deposit! Our goal is to help students develop healthy saving habits and have fun while doing so.
In order to accomplish this, we do need participating students to have an open Goal Club savings account. For your convenience, you can open a Goal Club account at any of our convenient branch locations, or you may apply online.
Goal Club account holders at the schools will receive a Savings Passbook when making their initial In-School Banking deposit. The Savings Passbook will be stamped and dated each time a student completes an In-School Banking deposit. Students who routinely make In-School Banking deposits will be entered to win a $100 savings deposit*!
*See Official Contest Rules for details. No purchase necessary to enter or win. Limit one entry per month. Other restrictions apply. Federally insured by NCUA.
