It’s never too early to start saving, and there’s no better way for kids to begin their financial journey than with a strong savings program. At The First Bank of Greenwich, we make saving fun for kids with our Start2Save program.

How it works
Each time our young account holders visit The First Bank of Greenwich, they will use a special Kids’ Teller Window, to deposit their coins in our cool counting machine and have a chance to spin our prize wheel.
Overall, this a great way to create a new generation of responsible youth who will continue making smart saving decisions well into adulthood while supporting the hard work of our local PTA’s.
The fun continues every time kids come to the bank.
Every child who visits the Bank is eligible to spin our prize wheel, made possible by the generous support of our participating Start2Save Merchants:
Caren’s Cos Cobber, Chicken Joe’s, The Fitness Edge Club, Joey B’s Famous Chili Hub, Party Paper & Things, Salon 221, Upper Crust Bagel Cafe and Zody’s 19th Hole Restaurant.
