Bank On - A new day for Banking in Knoxville

I'm sure you are asking , "What is Bank On." and "Why is Family Promise excited about whatever it is."  Well is is a new system of banking where the "un-banked" or "under-banked" can learn how to have a bank account WITHOUT incurring all those fees. Many of the major banks have joined in the program and offer banking products to clients like ours and make sure they have the information they need to be successful. It may seem like not a big deal to you, but if you are really struggling just to get by one overdraft fee can ruin your whole plan. Not everyone focuses on fees with automatic tellers. There are many ins and out to learn to be a successful and rsponsible bank account owner. So thank you United Way of Greater Knoxville and thank you for all the banks who have joined forces in the bank On Program. For more information see www.bankoneasttennesee.org
