Marquette Bank Provides Financial Education Class for James Ward Elementary Students
Marquette Bank helps spread commitment to financial literacy by teaching kids about banking and how to manage money
Orland Park, IL (November 28, 2012) – Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, recently hosted over 20 students and teachers from James Ward Elementary in Chicago at its 6316 S. Western Ave. branch, where they learned about banking, managing money and the importance of saving. As part of the experience, students also received a tour of the bank building and large vault, which dates back to 1912 and has a lot of history. “We have been providing financial education classes and bank tours to local schools since the bank opened its doors in 1945,” Manny Jimenez, Vice President & Community Reinvestment Officer, said. “Our goal is to spread financial literacy to people in our neighborhoods by partnering with community groups and local civic and religious institutions.” This event is part of Marquette Bank’s ongoing effort to spread financial literacy among people of all age groups and backgrounds. Studies show that children who learn about financial concepts and understand the importance of money management will be more financially responsible as adults.
Marquette Bank offers free financial education classes on a wide range of topics, including:
Financial seminars, classes and workshops are provided at no cost to local schools, churches, libraries, nonprofits, senior groups and community organizations.
