For those who are not familiar with this program, Dollar Dog is an in-school banking program which teaches students the importance of saving their money, how to be money-wise and guides them to be smart money managers.

How does this program work?

  • Every other week as students arrive for school on its designated day, their Dollar Dog deposit is collected by a teacher, secure lock box, or Empower Federal Credit Union representative.
  • The Dollar Dog deposit is made into the child’s account and a receipt of their deposit plus a special reward is mailed directly to home.

If your child is interested in becoming a Dollar Dog saver please contact Lauri Hoover at (315) 728-3474 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
