Heartland Bank and Trust Company supports local schools with Spirit Debit Cards

March 18, 2022

Heartland Bank and Trust Company presented 9 donations totaling over $7,000 to schools for orders placed on the schools Spirit Debit Cards between Dec 2021 and Feb 2022.

“Offering optional designs on debit cards may be new, but customers have been doing it for years on their checks,” stated Diane Lanier, Chief Retail Officer. “With the world going more electronic, and a continued focus on the environment, we wanted to offer our customers personal options on their debit cards other than our standard design.” Heartland Bank’s Spirit Debit Card program currently features 54 local schools with the school’s team mascot or crest as an optional design for the face of the card.

More than just a custom card design program, the Spirit Debit Cards also support local schools “Heartland Bank is proud to offer Spirit Debit Cards,” said Fred Drake, Chairman and CEO. “We are always looking for ways to reach out to our communities and show our support. Heartland Bank is excited to offer this new customized option to our customers and financially assist the school of their choice as well.”

This option will allow customers to select the school design of their choice for a $10 cost and Heartland Bank will donate $5 back to the school for each debit card ordered. A standard debit card is still available without customization at no charge. Customers can order this option through Heartland Bank at one of their local offices. The full list of participating schools is available on the Heartland Bank website.

Schools receiving donations were Deer Creek – Mackinaw, Delavan, El Paso Gridley, Lexington, Metamora, Princeton, Somonauk, Washington, and Illinois State University.
