Connecticut Saves Campaign is a statewide initiative to encourage Connecticut residents to take positive financial actions and save regularly to turn their dreams into reality. Here you will find workshops and events around the state, tools to help you set goals, develop strategies, and start saving. Join others from around our state in working toward achieving your financial goals.
The Connecticut Saves Coalition will be meeting up again this fall to work on plans for Connecticut Saves Week 2019. Contact us if you would like to learn more.
The Connecticut Saves Campaign participated in Money Madness, a financial education event held at Connecticut College in New London for students in area high schools sponsored by Chelsea Groton Bank. It was a great opportunity to talk with students about saving.

When it comes to spring cleaning, you probably haul the junk out of your garage, scrub your fridge, and wash the rugs and drapes. But don’t forget about your personal finances. Just after tax season is the perfect time to perform an annual evaluation and tidying up of your budget, bank accounts, debts, and investments. This workshop is provided by UConn Extension. Advance registration is highly recommended. Call the Information Desk at 860.444.5805, X2.
