Youth 12 and under need a parent, grandparent or guardian as a joint member on the account. Youth savings accounts require a $5 deposit at the time of opening and it must stay in the account to keep the membership (this membership deposit minimum will increase to $25 when the child turns 16). The child’s social security card (and parent’s identification) is all you need to open the account.
Random Acts of Kindness
Each April, we celebrate our program during Youth Month. During this month, we promote Sharing (giving back) through a contest where our youth members can submit ideas on how they would give-back in their community if they had an extra $20. At the end of the month we randomly draw several kids and help them carry out their ideas with a donation of $20.
Community Random Acts of Kindness
We want to keep the Random Acts of Kindness going and help spread the love. Each quarter, we will randomly draw and give away $100 to help fund a random act of kindness for a group, class, individual, or family. Email us to let us know your Random Acts of Kindness idea! Please include: Name, phone number, idea, anticipated cost, and projected date or deadline.
