What is Bank On Treasure Valley?

Bank On Treasure Valley, a nonprofit program of United Way of Treasure Valley, recognizes and addresses one of the most critical problems in our community - without a checking account, the most basic financial tool, unbanked families are hard-pressed to build savings and assets, and to respond to emergencies. Through Bank On, it's a simple process for Treasure Valley individuals to get connected to low-cost, starter checking and savings accounts. For Bank On certification and the opportunity to set up a checking account, program participants must complete five financial education classes totaling five to eight hours. LEARN MORE ABOUT BANK ON
