Bringing special meaning to the word change.

Get your bank today!

Piggies for Preemies challenges kids and adults throughout Kentucky and Southern Indiana to fill piggy banks with spare change. The money supports premature babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Norton Children’s Hospital. Each spring, kids enter to win a $500 scholarship by returning a full piggy bank or virtual piggy bank.

The 2018 Piggies for Preemies campaign was very successful. Kids raised more than $27,000 to help give premature babies at Norton Children’s Hospital a healthy start. The Piggies for Preemies campaign has brought in almost $350,000 since its inception in 2012.

Thank you to BB&T for its partnership and to everyone who participated in the 2018 program!

Piggies for Preemies is a year-round campaign. Now is the time to get ready for the 2019 campaign! You can use your own piggy bank or create a virtual piggy bank. Enter to win a $500 scholarship by turning in a full bank next spring.

You also may order supplies from the Children’s Hospital Foundation to run a larger effort through your work or school.



Win a $500 scholarship!

Enter by returning your full piggy bank to any BB&T location in Louisville or Southern Indiana through May 31, 2019. You may also “return” your bank by mailing a check for the contents of your piggy along with your return form to:
