Old Glory Bank Announces Code of Vets as Charitable Round-Up Partner


ELMORE CITY, Oklahoma.–()–Old Glory Bank is proud to announce that Code of Vets will be an Official Charity Partner for Old Glory Bank’s Charitable Round-Up program. Code of Vets is a non-profit organization that helps veterans in need.

Old Glory Bank is the first FDIC-insured bank to openly support America, its flag, liberty, patriotism, military and first responders. One of the bank’s many features will be its Charitable Round-Up program where customers will have the option to round to the nearest dollar and contribute every time they use their Old Glory Bank cards. Code of Vets will be one of the charities that customers can select.

Code of Vets, headquartered in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization founded by United States Air Force veteran Gretchen Smith in honor of her father, a US Army Staff Sgt. Danny E. Smiley, a Vietnam veteran who was exposed to Agent Orange and died of PTSD at age 57. Code of Vets offers immediate assistance to crisis-ridden, at-risk and needy veterans who have fallen through the cracks. Ninety-eight cents of every dollar donated to Code of Vets goes directly to care.

“We are thrilled to partner with a bank that will protect our funds, freedom and veterans,” explains Gretchen Smith. “Old Glory Bank will provide secure banking services to all Americans, and their focus on mobile banking will allow us to bring veterans back into the banking system. We have a bright future ahead of us with Old Glory Bank leading the way.”

“Old Glory Bank is honored to work with Gretchen and all of the great Code of Vets volunteers,” says Bennett Brown, senior regulatory officer at Old Glory Bank. “In my fifty years of banking, one of the biggest challenges in our industry is finding ways to ‘cash those without banks’. By working with Code of Vets, we will identify our great veterans who have exited the banking system and work hard to get them back.”

Headquartered in Elmore City, Oklahoma, Old Glory Bank will provide best-in-class mobile banking solutions in the United States and begin offering mobile banking services in Q1 2023. Old Glory Bank currently accepts account reservations at
