Getting Our Spirit On With School Spirit Debit Cards

Some of our earliest memories come from the excitement of starting a new school year. We wanted to recreate that excitement by celebrating our local school districts with School Spirit Debit Cards.

School Spirit Debit Cards came to life when the desire to support our local schools and our love for the community came together. Currently available for Lakewood City Schools and Olmsted Falls School District, showing school pride is simple and fun with the School Spirit Debit Card.

We wanted to make it as easy as possible to support the school districts. All First Federal Lakewood checking account customers are eligible to purchase a School Spirit Debit Card. With the purchase of a School Spirit Debit Card, half of the $10 annual fee goes back to the school district every year and whenever you use the card to make a purchase, $0.01 of every transaction is donated to the district. 

“Finding new and innovative ways to support the schools in our communities is an ongoing area of focus for First Federal Lakewood. It has long been a goal of ours to incorporate school spirit cards into our offerings, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to give our customers the ability to show their pride while giving back to their district every time they make a purchase!” said Kurt Raicevich, Senior Vice President, Chief Retail Officer of First Federal Lakewood.

We can’t wait to add more school districts to our School Spirit Debit Card family! Interested in adding your school or district to our program? Contact us at for more information.
