PRIMARY SCHOOL SAVING SCHEME

We know how important it is for children to learn how to save and manage their money, that’s why we have introduced our School Saving Scheme!

Get in touch

  • A child can collect a Savers Reward Card from their nearest branch and must save 5 times between September and May, it doesn’t run over the summer.
  • The child will receive a stamp everytime they save, they can fill out more than one card, and everyone who completes a Card will be in a draw to win €100!
  • There will be a €100 prize in each branch and Capital Credit Union will also donate €10 to the school for every completed Savers Reward Card
