2020 I'm Saving For Sweepstakes

We know that savers with a plan are more than twice as likely to make progress towards their savings goals as those without a plan. That’s why we created the America Saves Pledge. When someone takes the Pledge, they identify a savings goal (such as a rainy day fund or retirement), an amount to save per month, and the number of months they will save that amount. In other words, they make a basic savings plan.

During America Saves Week, we want to celebrate those who take action and make a commitment to themselves to save. Savers who take the America Saves Pledge can enter the annual #ImSavingFor Sweepstakes and win up to $750.

Those thrifty thoughts resurfaced when she graduated with a degree in public health.
