Kids Bank

F&M Bank & Trust School Banks program is the most successful youth financial literacy program in Iowa. We are pleased to be able to offer such an outstanding program to our area youth.


The F&M Kids Bank program, teaches kids to start saving money at any age. Teaching kids to save is about building character, learning responsibility, developing skills and practicing discipline that can be applied to real life situations.
 
As our School Banks program has thrived and grown one thing has remained the same...F&M Kids Bank is a bank for kids, run by kids. Every year 4th and 5th graders are given the opportunity to apply and work at F&M Kids Bank. They are interviewed at the beginning of the school year, hired, trained and given a work schedule.
 
Kids can sign up for a F&M Kids Bank account anytime. Applications do need to be filled out by legal guardian and can be turned in on F&M Kids Bank day at your school, mailed or dropped off at any of our bank locations.
