SEFCU Banking at TOAST

Student banking is coming soon. SEFCU will be at open house. Here are this year's deals.


Information on new incentives:

Banker Signup: $5

Any new student who opens an account will receive his/her first deposit from SEFCU! The student will receive the initial $1 needed to open the account at account opening and at the end of the month he/she will receive the remaining $4 deposited into his/her Smart Sense account.

Reading Activity: $5

Over the holiday break (December), SEFCU will offer a reading program to our school bankers. Students have the opportunity to earn up to $5 for reading over the holiday break. Students will earn $1 for each book read (up to $5) and will be entered in to a special prize drawing!

Perfect Attendance Reward: $5

As an added incentive to keep kids in school, SEFCU will be offering an incentive to students who have perfect attendance during the month of March! To earn the reward the student needs to have the teacher and parent sign off on a form and turn it in to SEFCU to earn $5!

Starring Report Card: $5

Students can turn in their starring report card to earn another $5 at the end of the school year. Report cards need to be turned in to SEFCU by July 31 to be eligible for the credit. Students should be in good standing and meeting expectations for their grade.

Money for your School!

Participating schools will also receive an incentive from the SEFCU banking program for their school. For every student who has an open and active account with SEFCU and participates in the School Banking program by December 31, the PTA will receive $5 for each account. The PTA will receive a check by January 29.

Fourth Day Bank Prizes:

So bankers can earn more prizes, Fifth Day bank prizes are now going to be Fourth Day bank prizes. Instead of larger prizes being given out after every fifth bank day (50 points) they will be given out every fourth bank day (40 points).

Thank you for all you do to make this banking program successful! We can’t do it without you.
