Stash Your Cash with an Explorer Savings Account

Gesa is proud to introduce a new savings account created specifically for our early savers ages 0-13 years old. Our Explorer Savings account offers:

Savings Match Incentive

Gesa will match deposits up to $25, in $5 increments, within the first year that the account is opened. Once the $25 maximum deposit match is met, no additional savings matches will be allowed on the account. Members will be limited to one Savings Match per member, per day¹.

Super Student Incentive

Bring in your child’s report card and receive a $5 ‘Super Student’ deposit into their Explorer Savings account! Once per season (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer), Explorer Savings account holders can bring in their report card and Gesa will deposit $5 for each report card shown to a teller. The Super Student incentive will be capped at $20 per calendar year, per member. Members will be limited to one Super Student incentive per member, per season².
