Planters First Bank offers free resources and conversation-starters on financial topics such as saving, setting financial goals, prioritizing spending decisions, and staying safe online.

Managing money isn’t easy. Learning about handling money as an adult makes it even more challenging. Teaching kids about money early on will help them to become more financially independent as they get older. At Planters First Bank, one of the ways we choose to give back to our communities is through youth development and financial education.
