Teach Children to Save Program
At FNBR®, we believe in providing our communities with financial education. The ABA Education Foundation established Teach Children to Save Day to highlight the importance of teaching our nation's youth about saving money. The event takes place in April and FNBR participates by providing free "Teach Children to Save" workshops to schools and organizations that serve children. To schedule a workshop at your school or organization, contact an FNBR office near you. For more information on the program click on the link below.
