North Carolina Saves
North Carolina Saves is an initiative of The Collaborative - Creating a Culture of Savings.
In NC, we are on a mission to educate, support and encourage people in their efforts to take control of their finances. Good financial management includes knowledge and practice. Throughout the state, people are learning about financial principles ranging from credit and debt, to budgeting and investing. The practice part is where savings comes in. Together, we can learn how to make savings a regular part of our routines, so that we prosper, both individually and collectively.
Building wealth starts when you set a goal and make a plan to reach that goal. Whatever goal you choose – whether it’s buying a car, buying a house, or getting out from under your debts – learn about proven savings strategies and get simple tips on the best ways to save.
