Sprout Savings Program

Sprout Savings™ will get your child off to a great financial start.

Sprout Savings is a program that encourages savings habits in kids and teens from 0 – 17. When your child opens a Youth Share Savings account, you can opt them in to the Sprout Savings program at the same time.

The Sprout Savings program provides your child with a money plant (yes, that’s really what it’s called!) upon opening a Youth Share Savings account. And to encourage saving, every time your child makes an in-branch deposit of $10, they will receive a prize!

Opting in to the Sprout Savings program allows your child to be entered into our monthly drawing, as well. Every month, we draw a winner to receive $50. The $50 prize will be directly deposited into the Youth Share Savings account, growing your child’s savings!

Is Sprout Savings Different from Youth Share Savings?

No, our Youth Share Savings account isn’t changing or going away. Sprout Savings is a program that pairs with the Youth Share Savings account.

How to Enroll in Sprout Savings
