Dollars for A's

Dollars for A's Program

With First Financial's Dollars for A's Program, kids can earn rewards for doing well in school:
  • When they are enrolled in the program, we will reward your child for getting A's on his or her report card each marking period.
  • When your child earns an "A," First Financial will deposit $1 into their First Step Kids Savings Account!*
It's a great way to reward your child for doing his or her best in school. It also teaches the life long practice of saving for the future!
