It's Never Too Early

To Teach Kids About Money.

The best time to start teaching your kids about money is now! In fact, the more children understand about money at an early age, the better equipped they will be as adults to make wise financial decisions. FORUM has accounts for every age that help teach financial responsibility and give more options as children grow and become more financially independent.

Sprout College Matching Account (open at birth)

 

FORUM's  Sprout College Matching Account is the perfect way to save for your child’s future educational needs. Funds deposited are matched up to $100 each year, plus the money earns a competitive dividend rate.


Start With A Savings Account (perfect for any age)

 

FORUM’s Youth Savings Accounts help teach kids the principles of spending, saving, and sharing at an early age. Children receive a moon jar at account opening and can participate in our sticker reward program to get prizes for making deposits.
