FEATURED CARD - School First Credit Card

First State's "School First" Card is a credit card designed to support your local school. The money given to the school is based on a percentage of all purchases made by customers who use their First State School First Card. There is no annual fee and no extra cost to the customer, however the school benefits from the use of the card. As a result of this program, checks are presented annually to the school districts. 

Districts currently participating in the First State School First Program:

  • Illini West High School District
  • Hamilton Community School District
  • West Prairie School District
  • Monmouth-Roseville School District
