MAKING AN IMPACT


FINANCIAL LITERACY IS A NECESSITY FOR EVERYONE.

Our children should move into adulthood with a strong, reality-based understanding of personal finances. We’re doing something about that with our free financial literacy program for school students and educators  in our region.

It’s just another way we serve our communities.
 


26 Schools sponsored. 63 Teachers served. 5,060 students educated.

It's about more than MONEY

The Bank of Marion is smart about business. But supporting financial literacy is more than good business - it's about giving back. It's about giving young people a gift that will last forever.

Schools are changing rapidly. More students take laptops or tablets home, instead of textbooks, than ever before. Our program is not only a modern financial literacy platform-available on desktops and tablets- it's memorable and interactive.
