Bremer Bank named financial partner to CollegeBound Saint Paul


Bank will provide accounts for the city’s efforts to start every child born in Saint Paul on the pathway to college

Earlier this week, Saint Paul Mayor Melvin Carter announced Bremer Bank as the financial partner to the city’s innovative program to provide every child born in Saint Paul with a savings account and a $50 seed deposit to help illuminate a path to higher education.

"Bremer is proud to be a partner in this crucial program, helping to improve the access to higher education for families across Saint Paul. At Bremer, we know that strong neighborhoods mean strong communities, and strong communities build strong economies. Providing the banking accounts for this effort is perfectly in line with our purpose to cultivate thriving communities, and we are thrilled to be a part of it,” said Erin Dady, Chief Marketing Officer of Bremer Bank.

The program kicks off January 1, 2020. Families will receive access to College Savings Accounts, into which they will be able to make deposits at any Bremer Bank location.

Bremer brings a team of people ready to support CollegeBound Saint Paul's success, and a long history of helping our community grow and prosper.
