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 2024, AB&T is awarding a total of $50,475 to local schools through our Spirit Card Program, bringing our grand total to $261,367.37 in the last 12 years!

    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.
