American Bank & Trust Gives Back

At American Bank & Trust, we’re invested heavily into the future of South Dakota.

Our organization believes that our team’s daily interactions with customers make a true difference. But, we also know that lending a helping hand outside of the bank’s walls can make even a larger impact!

One of our bank’s key values is We are personally responsible for continually finding ways to improve. Our staff is encouraged to not only make improvements at work, but also volunteer and help to make positive changes in the communities where they work, live and grow.

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 are passionate about supporting our local school districts. In response to the mounting budgetary needs of local schools, we are inspired to give back through Spirit Cards – a Debit 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.

If you would like a Spirit Card, call or stop at American Bank & Trust and speak with a Personal Banker today!
