ChoiceOne Bank recently donated $560 to the Sparta Education Foundation (SEF). Sparta Area Schools employees were given the challenge: for every Health Savings Account (HSA) they opened at ChoiceOne Bank within a certain time frame, the bank would donate $10 to the SEF.

“As the local community bank, we are proud to assist the Sparta Area Schools employees with all their financial needs,” said President and CEO of ChoiceOne Bank, Jim Bosserd. “HSAs are great accounts for the schools and their employees as they help save money for medical expenses now and into retirement. This challenge was a win-win for everyone.”

Customers who open HSAs at ChoiceOne Bank can access their HSA funds to pay for their “qualified medical expenses.” Access to their account is easy with an HSA debit card, HSA checks, electronically or in person. HSAs are a tax-advantaged way to save and pay for healthcare.

By issuing this challenge to the Sparta Area Schools employees, ChoiceOne was able to help the community with their donation of $560 to the SEF.

ChoiceOne Bank offers insurance and investment products through its subsidiary, ChoiceOne Insurance Agencies Inc.
