Empowering Confident Financial Decisions

Raise the Banner is Synovus’ financial education program. It’s designed to equip individuals with basic financial concepts and principles, empowering them to make confident financial decisions — and reach their personal and economic goals.

We provide financial education classes for individuals of all ages through the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s (FDIC) Money Smart financial education program. And we partner with nonprofits, schools, universities, and other organizations to make a difference in the lives of those throughout the communities we serve.

“Raise the Banner is about expanding what we do at Synovus every day: improve lives and strengthen communities.”

- Kevin Blair, Synovus Chairman, CEO and President

Junior Achievement

In partnership with Junior Achievement, Synovus team members also deliver lessons on essential life skills, including financial education, work and career readiness, and entrepreneurship, to thousands of students in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee.

As part of this outreach, team members volunteer to teach Junior Achievement programs through local elementary and middle schools and bring these lessons to life for the students.
