Panther Debit Card
First National Bank cares about education and is proud to partner with our communities to make a positive difference in our schools. The Panther Debit Card does just that! The Panther Debit Card was created in 2009 in response to the mounting budgetary needs of the New Richland, Hartland, Ellendale, and Geneva (NRHEG) School system. The card, emblazoned with the Panther logo, helps promote school pride and generate income for the New Richland Area School System with each and every purchase.
In 2004, First National Bank created the Bluejay Debit Card in the Waseca market, sharing the interchange revenue generated from its use to Waseca area schools. Since the inception of the Bluejay Debit Card, First National Bank has donated over $300,000 to Waseca area schools. The Panther Debit Card works in the same way; every time the card is used to make a point of sale purchase, First National Bank donates a percentage of the interchange fee back to NRHEG schools and programs, with over $40,000 donated to NRHEG.
The Panther Debit Card makes giving back to your schools easy and can be used wherever MasterCard is accepted, and you can access your cash anywhere with free usage at any MoneyPass ATM.
