Hold a Competition

This section contains an overview of a pilot program that encouraged and motivated students, faculty, and staff to set a personal savings commitment and make a simple plan to achieve it. While the materials in this section focus on students this model can be replicated across many different organizations and audiences.


Organize a Campaign 

Using the principles of social marketing, the development of a community-based America Saves campaign is a “partnership” between the local organization(s) and the national America Saves team. The campaign encourages good saving behavior throughout the community and motivates and supports individuals and families to save money, reduce debt, and build wealth.
