American Bank & Trust strives to make an impact throughout our local communities to let them know that we genuinely care. We give back to our communities through a variety of donations, event, programs, and sponsorships.
Each year, our Spirit Card program helps schools within our communities to purchase additional needs for staff and students. In 2023, AB&T is awarding a total of $45,107 to local schools through our Spirit Card Program – almost double the amount from 2022!
Spirit Card Program To Help Local Schools
Support your favorite local school by getting an American Bank & Trust Spirit Card. In response to the mounting budgetary needs of school districts, American Bank & Trust is inspired to give back to our local communities through Spirit Cards. Use your Spirit Card to make purchases and we will donate a percentage from each purchase back to the school district on your card.
Spirit Cards have helped schools purchase everything from bus passes for kids in need, to a climbing rock wall, travel expenses for FFA Convention, and library furniture.
Get your Spirit Card today by speaking with a banker to at any of our American Bank & Trust locations.
