Young AmeriTowne Bank




Help build a Colorado where every student, regardless of background, knows how to earn, make and manage money wisely.


Each year, the Send-a-School Project affords low-income schools an opportunity to participate in the Young AmeriTowne and International Towne educational programs.  A pioneer in financial education for youth, Young Americans’ hands-on approach to teaching personal finance, economics and business was embraced by parents and teachers 25 years before “financial literacy” was defined on a national level, and we remain at the forefront of the field.  We believe that providing youth with real world skills and career development opportunities will lead to financial independence for individuals and families, and ultimately provide strong economic development opportunities for communities.

Young Americans works with all schools but particularly strives to build relationships with schools and schools districts serving significant numbers of children from low-income families.


In 2023, Young Americans spent $430,032 to fund 47 low-income schools and 2,848 deserving students.
