School Spirit Program
Ameris Bank’s School Spirit Program launched in January 2014 and is a unique opportunity for schools in our communities to earn additional funds, without having to utilize a traditional fundraising method.
How does it work?
When any parent, faculty member, booster or supporter of a school opens an Ameris Bank Access Checking Account, Ameris Bank will then issue your school a quarterly “bonus” based on the aggregate balance of these non-interest checking accounts.
This unique fundraising opportunity also gives Ameris Bank the opportunity to give back to our schools, and help enrich the lives of our children.
1. Talk to your school
If your school is not already enrolled in the program, encourage school leadership to meet with their local banking representative to learn more.
If your school is enrolled in the program, simply ask your banker about participating in the program.
2. Talk to your banker
If you don’t have an Ameris Bank non-interest bearing checking account – open one today! Your local banker will note the school of choice within your customer record. Ameris Bank will donate to your school a quarterly “bonus” – donation is determined by a percentage of the total balances in all checking accounts supporting your school of choice.
