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 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 Week

Military Saves also works with FINRA Investor Education Foundation, the defense credit unions, military banks, and other non-profit organizations to promote savings and debt reduction.
