Grinnell State Bank is proud to partner with and support our communities and children!  We provide a Teach Children to Save Program across all our 5 branch locations.  Invite us to come to your school today!  We will teach the students about banking, money, future planning and much more.  Our lesson plans start as young as Pre-school and will reach up to College Class Structures.  We are here to teach our youth about MONEY. 

  • The do’s and don’ts! 
  • Why and Why not!
  • How to get started? 
  • What is a Credit Score and why is it important?
  • What makes a Strong Bank and why should you bank with a Strong, Solid Bank?
