American Bank & Trust strives to make a positive impact on our communities. Our organization believes that our team’s daily interactions with customers make a true difference. But, we also understand that lending a helping hand outside of the bank walls can make even a larger impact! Our employees collectively volunteer over 1,400 hours per year to a variety of projects and non-profit organizations. American Bank & Trust employees enjoy giving back with their hearts and their hands.


Investing in Our Schools

Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” At American Bank & Trust, we passionately support our local school districts. In response to the mounting budgetary needs of local schools, we were inspired to give back through Spirit Cards – an ATM/Check card that showcases a school district’s name, colors and mascot. The card is linked to a customer’s checking account and when a purchase is made, the bank donates money back to the school. Donations are distributed on an annual basis.

Spirit Cards are currently available for the Huron Tigers, Wessington Springs Spartans, Miller Rustlers, De Smet Bulldogs, Wolsey-Wessington Warbirds, Northwestern Wildcats, Pierre Governors and Stanley County Buffalos.

Learn about how schools have used the funds donated by American Bank & Trust.
