Fire Debit Card
Spend to support essential Fire Service
The Civic Bonus Checking Account maximizes your impact for others and simplifies your finances. And our optional Fire debit card gives you an additional and separate way to help Civic give funding to the NC State Firefighters' Association (NCSFA).
The Bonus Checking Account provides all the financial wellness tools you need with our app and online banking. And you can earn higher dividends1 on your Bonus Checking average daily balance by making 20 debit card purchases in one month.
As an additional option, when you select to add the Fire debit card to your account, you help Civic donate funds to help support critical NCSFA programs. Each time you use the Fire debit card, Civic donates 50% of its share of net merchant fees directly to programs sponsored by NCSFA. That means you help Civic donate funds that help pay for firefighter training, health insurance, disability income, and more.
