Organize a Local Campaign

If you are interested in organizing a community campaign, we are eager to help. America Saves supports affiliated campaigns with a significant amount of resources, materials and technical assistance, including a support structure for both campaigns and individual Savers.

To start, we provide a local campaign organizing guide that takes you step by step through the process of creating your Saves initiative and includes lots of ready-to-use resources.

After taking a look at the organizing guide, you will want to talk to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
