Cash for Schools Debit Card Program

Use your HCSB Debit Card and earn cash for South Hardin, BCLUW and AGWSR schools. Hardin County Savings Bank will donate up to 10% of our interchange income for purchases that require a signed sales receipt (including internet transactions) and for each purchase that requires a PIN. The overall donation each school receives depends on how many customers choose that school, and how many transactions are made. The income is based on the amount of card usage. The more a debit card is used, the more money the school will receive.
