For Immediate Release: June 3, 2019
Over 500 Installations, Organizations, Banks and Credit Unions Will Participate.
Washington, D.C. – MilitarySaves.org, a research-based program that uses the principles of behavioral economics and social marketing to motivate the military community to build wealth and reduce debt, is excited to announce that starting next year, the organization will be aligning its efforts with National Financial Capability Month. The new initiative, called Military Saves Month, will kick off April 1, 2020.
Military Saves, a component of America Saves coordinated by the non-profit Consumer Federation of America (CFA), encourages the entire military community to take the Military Saves Pledge and for organizations to promote a savings message year-round.
The Military Saves Pledge is a savings tool that can be the start of a personal savings plan. Since the launch of Military Saves, more than 300,000 individuals have taken the Pledge to save.
Military Saves Director Angela Caban emphasizes how much the transition to Military Saves Month will benefit both organizations and financial readiness in the military community. “This will give our partners more time to prepare, promote, and host their events, and will give installations more flexibility when it comes to scheduling financial readiness activities. It will also give Military Saves the opportunity to work more closely than ever with our participating organizations.”
Military Saves is committed to helping servicemembers and their families succeed financially. Organizations that work with military populations are encouraged to sign-up for updates, share the Military Saves message, and encourage everyone to take the Military Saves pledge or re-pledge at militarysaves.org/take-the-pledge.
Military Saves, a component of America Saves, aims to motivate, support, and inspire military families to save money and build wealth. Military Saves encourages all servicemembers, their families, and civilian employees to take the Military Saves Pledge and for organizations to promote savings year-round and during Military Saves Month.
