Question of the Month
What’s a school deposit day?

Some schools take K2C deposits on site. Students are encouraged to bring their money to school on a select date where school staff along with volunteers, act as “bankers” taking student deposits. The funds are taken to the bank on behalf of students by volunteers or K2C partners. These events can be a part of college and career week or rallies. Contact K2C at to organize a School Deposit day at your school.
We Raised $1,613 in ONE Day!

K2C participated in the 1:1 Fund’s #GivingTuesday Campaign, which matched each donation, up to $500 each. In just one day, we raised $1,613! Thanks to generous supporters like you, we have more incentives to help families and students to save!
