Kirby Kangaroo Club
(For members up to 12 years old)
At a time when more people file for bankruptcy than graduate from college, it’s important to begin teaching fiscal responsibility and money management skills as early as possible. Start your children off right by developing good savings habits. The Kirby Kangaroo Club is free and your child earns Kirby prizes as they learn to save!

- Special Share Certificates—With $100 minimum deposit, Kirby members earn a rate .25% higher than our regular Share Certificate. A variety of terms (6, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, 60) are available and additional deposits of $25 or more may be made at any time. (There is a penalty for early withdrawal of funds.)

This program teaches teens good saving habits and financial responsibility through education and hands-on experience with a wide variety of cost-effective financial services. Members can remain in the program up to age 23 if they’re full-time college students.
