How can my school participate?

Starting the Saving Makes "Cents" Program At Your School Is Easy!

To get the program started, Florence Bank will need:

1. Written approval from:

Public schools - school committee approval.

Parochial schools - the superintendent.

Private and independent schools - the dean or headmaster.

2. Completed School Participation Form

3. Help coordinating the support of volunteers to operate the program.

Once Florence Bank receives written approval from the school along with the information on the School Participation Form, the Saving Makes "Cents" program can be set up very quickly.

A representative from the bank will get together with a representative (volunteer) from the school to design a Savings Makes"Cents" program especially for your school.
