For Parents & Teachers

The Stifel Bank & Trust Budget Bunny is a cornerstone of our financial literacy and education program. Through a partnership with the United Way of Greater St. Louis and LionForge Labs, we created comic books and coloring books to enable children to learn the importance of healthy money management. These books tell the story of Bud, the Budget Bunny, and his friends as they learn the concepts of earning, entrepreneurship, and collaboration while making their way around our local community.
