About Woodforest National Bank
With over 750 branches, Woodforest National Bank celebrated three decades of banking service in 2010. The privately-held Bank began with a single branch in Houston, Texas, and now has locations in 17 states stretching across the Eastern, Southern, and Midwest United States. Headquartered in The Woodlands, Texas, Woodforest National Bank provides a full range of personal and business banking services and products to its customers. Many in-store branches offer extended hours and are open year-round, including many major holidays.
In addition to offering numerous personal and business financial services, some of which include online and mobile banking, identity security, and treasury management, Woodforest National Bank provides customers with its educational service: “Woodforest U." With this program, Woodforest uses a range of educational resources to encourage customers to make sound financial choices to lead to stable financial futures.
One specific component of “Woodforest U” is the online course entitled “Banking GPS: Navigate Your Way to Better Banking!” which is intended to equip customers with tools to help manage their finances. Presented in three modules, the course teaches banking fundamentals, including taking advantage of what banks offer, understanding check processing, and learning about debit cards.
In coordination with the FDIC, Woodforest National Bank also offers classroom courses designed to provide individuals with financial education. The FDIC’s national financial curriculum, the “Money Smart” program, has helped over 2.5 million people in just over 10 years. This financial education program’s intent is to guide individuals toward healthy savings and buying choices.
