Many of our loyal contributors want to support us even though they have fewer dollars to give. That is why Ameriana Bank created its Make a Difference Charitable Giving Program – to help our supporters make contributions they might otherwise be unable to make. For each person who opens an Ameriana checking account with a Visa Check Card®, Ameriana will make a $25 donation on their behalf to Susie’s Place and will give them $25 as a thank you. Plus, each and every time that person refers a friend or family member to open a new Ameriana checking account, Ameriana will donate $25 on each of their behalves to Susie’s Place and give them and their friend or family member $25 each. Stop into any Ameriana banking center to get involved or visit their website.
