Kearney schools have gained nearly $75K over 10 years thanks to debit card program
Kearney, Mo., August 31, 2021: Citizens Bank & Trust continues to prove that it is banking on the future of Kearney’s children.
Bank Vice President Nicki Barnes presented a $2,592 donation to the Kearney School District Education Foundation on Friday, Aug. 27 at the KSD Administrative Office. The funds were generated by the bank’s School Debit Card program.
“This program allows our customers to show support for their school with a mascot debit card,” Ms. Barnes said. “Citizens is able to directly support our community schools by donating five cents for every point-of-sale transaction using those cards.”
KSD has been part of the School Debit Card program since 2011 and to date has received $74,843 as a result.
The mission of the Kearney School District Education Foundation is to bring together area business and community leaders who value education to guide and direct resources outside the district budget thereby providing opportunities to enrich the educational experience for KSD students and staff.
