School Saving Program

The School Savings Program is a partnership between Sturgis Bank & Trust Company and “participating” schools in our communities.  Since 1991, hundreds of students have opened their own savings accounts and taken their very first steps on the road to financial responsibility.

Here's how it works:

To OPEN a School Savings Account for your student, simply visit one of our branch locations.


We will need your student’s SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER and a COPY of their BIRTH CERTIFICATE.  The Parent/Guardian that will be on the account with the student will need a valid GOVERNMENT PICTURE ID and SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER.

A Bank Representative will visit your child’s school weekly on their designated “Banking Day” to accept deposits from students with bank accounts. They are not required to make deposits weekly.  The students will receive a prize when making a deposit.  This deposit will be logged into their savings book (if brought to School) and then taken back to the Bank to be deposited into their account.

  • Colon Schools: Colon Elementary
  • Sturgis Public Schools: Congress Elementary, Eastwood Elementary, Wall Elementary, & Wenzel Elementary

PLEASE NOTE: If your child does not attend one of the "participating" schools, you may still open a School Savings account and they can make their deposits at any branch location.
