COMMUNITY ALLIANCE PROGRAM (CAP)
with BOILING SPRINGS SAVINGS BANK

Boiling Springs Savings Bank's Community Alliance Program offers a way to raise money throughout the year at NO COST to our members! Boiling Springs account holders can simply go to any Boiling Springs branch and designate College Club (CAP #85) as their beneficiary for the program. Checking accounts, savings accounts, CDs, IRAs, and new loans all qualify. Account holders do not have to be members of College Club. Boiling Springs makes quarterly donations to College Club based on a percentage of the average daily balances of our supporters' designated accounts. All donations come directly from the bank and no associated fees are charged to account holders or to College Club. The program is completely confidential. 
           
This past fiscal year, College Club received almost $10,000 of FREE MONEY from Boiling Springs.  Please sign up today!



GOLD RUSH!
Turn your unwanted, mismatched, tangled jewelry item into cash for College Club! Last year Gold Rush donations raised $1,000 at no cost to members!



Here’s how: Bring any 10-carat-or-higher gold item to our monthly meetings, or call Kathy Marshall at 201-251-2512 to arrange for pick-up. Platinum and silver too! We bag it with your name and phone number, and give it to a qualified assayer for official weighing and melting. We tell you the total value of the donation and YOU decide how much you’d like the Club’s Education Fund to receive. It’s that simple!
  
If you have questions, please contact Kathy or our gemologist/consultant, Siobhan Crann Winograd at 201-857-2500.
