Improve your saving – and help others to save more

Opportunity to Join America Saves Week and Promote the Importance of Saving

Unless you’ve recently inherited a large estate, or perhaps won the lottery, saving is critical to reaching your goals.  America Saves Week, February 24 – March 1, 2014, is an annual opportunity for organizations to promote good savings behavior and a chance for individuals to assess their own saving status. Foothills Financial Planning supports this effort, and I want to get the word out early to encourage others to participate.

How to Participate

For starters, sign up for America Saves Week today.

From promoting the benefits of savings to employees – to offering incentives for people to open or add money to savings accounts – to holding workshops and developing new partnerships – there are so many ways to help people take financial action during the Week.

Learn more about what your organization can do during the Week at the links below.
