Currently, the College Kids program offers incentives to earn money in your child's account, in addition to the $50 opening deposit by the City of St. Louis’ Treasurer’s Office. These incentives encourage you and your children to save for higher education.
Weekly Perfect Attendance: Students can earn $1/week during the school year for attending school and arriving on time for each day of school in session that week. Parents must sign a waiver of consent to share information from the schools with the Treasurer’s Office in order to be eligible for this program. This form will be included in your welcome packet.
Steady Saver: Deposits up to the first $100 will be matched, dollar-for-dollar.
Financial Education: Parents and guardians are able to earn an additional $50 in contributions by completing financial education courses in-person, online through Wells Fargo Hands on Banking® and through the College Kids smartphone app.
