McPherson’s Sunflower Bank was one of several branches in Kansas, Colorado and Missouri that helped raise $102,500 during its 2016 ABC campaign that was developed to support education. Over $5,750 of the total is being donated to schools and students in McPherson.

The ABC Program began in 2001 and has generated over $1,036,700 throughout the past 15 years for schools and students in Kansas, Colorado, and Missouri.

“We made a commitment to support education through our ABC program 15 years ago and we are proud of the success it has generated,” said Mollie Carter, President and CEO of Sunflower Bank. “We know the program’s success translates to increased resources for our schools and the funds raised will support man important initiatives. We are honored to create possibility for youth within our communities through education.”

Beginning January 1 through March 31 of this year, new and current customers raised money for their K-12 school of choice by opening a checking account or swiping their debit card. Students scored with $10 for every “A” on their report card if their name was one of five drawn at every branch.

Sunflower Bank plans to bring the ABC Program back for a 16thyear in 2017. More can be learned about Sunflower Bank’s efforts to support the communities it serves by visiting the local Sunflower Branch in McPherson at the corner of Maple and Kansas Ave. or by visiting their website at
