Grow Financial Volunteers With Junior Achievement’s BizTown
We’re growing students’ knowledge of the business world! Volunteers organized by the Grow Financial Foundation partnered with Junior Achievement to help fifth-grade students through their BizTown program.
BizTown combines in-class learning with a day-long visit to a simulated town. This popular program allows elementary school students to operate banks, manage restaurants, write checks, and vote for mayor. The program helps students connect the dots between what they learn in school and the real world.
One of Grow Financial’s Market Managers, Janie Rios, helped to coordinate the volunteers to guide students during the simulation day.
“Participating in events such as JA Biztown play a positive part in developing today’s youth,” Rios said. “Assisting in the growth of the children have a priceless effect on tomorrow’s future in more ways than we can imagine.”
Junior Achievement’s purpose is just that—to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. Sally Eidge, VP of Capstone at Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay, Inc., knows that volunteers from the community are an important part of making that happen.
“The JA BizTown program cannot function without a volunteer component,” Eidge said. “Volunteers from financial institutions have great insight that they can share with the students. The Grow Financial volunteers were engaged and patient with the students going through the program and definitely contributed to the success of the day.”
The Grow Financial Foundation is proud to offer volunteers to support initiatives like Junior Achievement’s BizTown and many other worthy causes in local communities.
“Reaching out to the community allows us the opportunity to have a direct impact with both the people and businesses around us,” Rios said.

How to Find Your Routing & Account Numbers
When you make a payment online, by phone or on a mobile device, you may be asked for our routing number and your checking account number. Credit unions and banks use these numbers to identify accounts and make sure money gets where it’s supposed to be. You’ll also need to provide your routing and checking account numbers for:
- Direct deposits
- Electronic checks
- Military allotments
- Wire transfers
Where to Find Your Routing & Checking Account Numbers
Your personal checks include both our routing number and your account number, as shown on the Grow check example below.
Don’t have a Grow check? No worries.
Visit any Grow store and ask for a Direct Deposit Form. It lists both your routing number and checking account number.
Making a Loan Payment
When it comes to making payments, we try to make it as painless as possible to pay your loan every month. We have several different ways to pay, including convenient online options.
You have two ways to pay online by transferring funds from another bank or credit union.
- Grow Online Banking (Preferred payment method for any loan)
This is the simplest way to pay your loan. You can make one-time payments or set up automatic recurring payments in Grow Online Banking. Once you log in, select “Transfer/Payments” from the menu. If you’re not enrolled in Grow Online Banking yet, you can set up your account in just a few minutes.
- Debit Card or ACH (Available for auto, personal loans and HELOCs)
Note: ACH and debit card payments are not available for credit cards or most mortgages, except HELOCs.
We accept ACH payments with no additional fees or Mastercard® and Visa® debit cards with a convenience fee of $4.95. To get started with an online ACH or debit card payment, select Pay Now below.
Pay by Mail
You can also pay any Grow loan by check through the mail. Please remember to include your account number and Grow loan number on the check. (For credit card payments, please do not write your 16-digit credit card number on the check, which can cause a delay in processing the payment.)
