Financial education resources to move you in a brighter direction

Our programs are designed just for you

BB&T provides interactive tools and training programs to increase financial education for all ages. By focusing on financial needs at every stage of life, we empower students, friends and neighbors to become more informed consumers, armed with the knowledge and insight they need to take control of their financial future.

BB&T Bank Bus

The Bank Bus serves as a community resource center conducive to providing financial education and lending information. It is a full-size commercial bus retrofitted as a self-contained production and educational center. It contains computer workstations, printers, Internet connectivity, and more. When the bus is not on school campuses, it can be found at community events and fairs, at large employers, and even assisting in disaster areas.

BB&T Financial Foundations Program

The BB&T Financial Foundations Program, powered by EverFi (opens in a new tab), puts you in more control of your financial life. You can participate in our free interactive courses to learn financial hints and tips to help you head in a brighter direction.

BB&T Financial Foundations for high schools

In partnership with EverFi, the country's leading education technology company, this program provides interactive financial education to high schools throughout our footprint. More than 275,000 students have completed the eight-hour curriculum covering core financial concepts.

BB&T Financial Foundations for colleges and universities

In 2010, the EverFi Buttonwood Program began with select historically black colleges and universities in Alabama. Buttonwood, now called Transit, is the college-level version of EverFi, and with support from BB&T, is available to students for financial education at the partnering schools. In 2013, BB&T and EverFi expanded the program to include additional schools throughout the BB&T footprint.

Local partnerships

The knowledge, skills and habits needed to manage money successfully at the personal or family level are critical to making our communities more secure. BB&T's goal is to become a trusted financial advisor by sharing knowledge with those in the communities we serve. The bank has allocated financial and human resources to this worthy cause. In addition to the bank's traditional host of financial education options, BB&T supports many local partners through community partnerships.
