Belmont Savings Unveils Newton Education Rewards Checking
NEWTON - Belmont Savings Bank today unveiled Newton Education Rewards Checking, an account designed to support Newton Schools Foundation (NSF) to spur innovation in the City’s public schools.
This new checking account was recently introduced during an event where Hal Tovin, COO of Belmont Savings Bank, presented a $5,000 check to the Newton Schools Foundation to support their Investing in Innovation campaign. This initial donation will help support innovation in Newton schools and was received by Liz Richardson and Julie Sall, co-â€ presidents of Newton Schools Foundation as well as Rick Iacobucci, Executive Director of Newton Schools Foundation.
“Belmont Savings is proud of the relationships we have fostered in our communities and, as such, are launching this first of its kind account to specifically benefit Newton schools,” said Bob Mahoney, President and Chief Executive Officer of Belmont Savings Bank. “As one of the area’s most admired community banks, we are continuously exploring opportunities to make a meaningful difference locally. Newton Education Rewards Checking will create another way for the Bank and our customers to support the Newton community.”
For every new account that is opened, Belmont Savings Bank will donate $50 to Newton Schools Foundation and will give $50 to the account holder. Additionally, through this program, Belmont Savings will contribute 0.25 percent of the account’s average monthly balance to the Foundation.
“This innovative approach from a local business is a creative way to benefits students in the Newton school system,” said Rick Iacobucci. “Since the donation amounts generated from each account can quickly add up to something big for the schools, we are very pleased by Belmont Savings’ efforts to improve the community.”
Customers maintaining an active Newton Education Rewards Checking Account will have unlimited ATM
“Newton Education Rewards Checking is a best-in-market checking account that improves the quality of Newton schools,” said Hal
