Hills Bank has a program that will do just that. Classroom Cash empowers you to earn money for the private school or public school district of your choice in our community each time you make a purchase with your Hills Bank debit card or business debit card. With every purchase, the bank will make a donation back to the school at various times throughout the year. There is no cost to you; it’s just a great way for us to make a difference in our community schools – together.

  • FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT CLASSROOM CASH

    My kids go to different schools. Can I register more than one school?

    No, only one school may be designated for each debit cardholder. If you and your spouse each have a Hills Bank debit card attached to one checking account, you may each designate a private school or public school district in our community to receive donations from each individual debit card. Similarly, you could designate a business debit card to a different school than your personal debit card. The donations are based upon each card’s usage.

    If I change my school in the middle of the year, which school will benefit from my points?

    You may change your designated school by calling 1-800-445-5725 (1-800-HILLSBK) or complete the online application. The private school or public school district in our community on your record at the time we calculate the rewards will receive the donation.

    Can I see which customers are participating in the Classroom Cash for my designated school?

    No, due to our privacy policy, customers cannot view other customers’ information.

    What does the donation go toward at the schools?

    Hills Bank imposes no spending requirements or guidelines; we trust the money will be used to contribute to the betterment of the school.
