What is Military Saves?
Military Saves, a component of the nonprofit America Saves, seeks to motivate, support, and encourage military families to save money, reduce debt, and build wealth. The research-based campaign coordinated by the non-profit Consumer Federation of America (CFA), uses the principles of behavioral economics and social marketing to change behavior.
Military Saves encourages the entire military community to take the Military Saves pledge and for organizations to promote savings year-round, and especially during Military Saves Month in April.
Military Saves also works with government agencies, defense credit unions, military banks, and other non-profit organizations to promote savings and debt reduction.
Military Saves' researched-based work to improve the saving behavior of service members, their families, and DoD civilian employees is supported by the generous contributions of:
- FINRA Investor Education Foundation
- USAA Educational Foundation
- Wells Fargo Foundation
- Association of Military Banks of America
- Defense Credit Union Council
