20 Panhandle area schools were gifted a share of nearly $57,000 in 2023 courtesy of Firstbank Southwest’s ‘School Spirit Card Program.’

FBSW began the program in 2019. Students are issued customized debit cards with their school logo or mascot on it. Each time that card is used, a portion of that transaction is donated back to the school from Firstbank Southwest.

The total amount returned to schools last year was a 35 percent increase from the previous year. Schools can use the funds generated through the program however they wish.

To get your School Spirit Card or to get your school involved, stop by any branch of Firstbank Southwest.
