About Kearny Bank Educational Institution Solutions

Educators spend their days exploring and enriching what is possible in education, to build the best schools that empower teachers and students to thrive beyond their expectations. They influence the positive characteristics and attributes which will shape the leaders of tomorrow. But too frequently they do not have a true partner to provide the leadership and guidance they also need in order to allow their institutions to thrive.

That is why we built Kearny Bank's Educational Institution Solutions team. We strive toward high standards and provide schools with professional expertise that is focused on their vision and desired academic achievements. Our services will assist in meeting the goals and required obligations of the school.

We specialize in delivering solutions that educational institutions need, joined with rapid and local decision-making. With Kearny Bank's support, we want educators to focus on the mission, not the business; leave the Educational Institution Solutions to us.

Some of the ways we help clients in the Education space include:

  • Extended FDIC Insurance Coverage
  • Treasury Management & Merchant Services
  • Cashflow Management
  • Business Banking
  • Secure vault solution with remote deposits and immediate cash availability
  • Kearny @ Work: Banking benefits for faculty and staff
