What is Military Saves?
Military Saves, a component of America Saves, and a participant in the Department of Defense Financial Readiness Network seeks to motivate, support, and encourage the entire military community to save money, reduce debt, and build wealth.
The research-based Military Saves program, coordinated by the non-profit Consumer Federation of America (CFA), uses the principles of behavioral economics and social marketing to change savings behavior and motivate action.
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.
Through our parent organization, the nonprofit Consumer Federation of America, Military Saves is a proud participant in the DoD’s Financial Readiness Network.
The Network was established to enhance the financial health of the Force using all available resources. The financial well-being of service members and their families is recognized as being an essential component of mission readiness.
The Network provides a collaborative venue for Federal departments and agencies, as well as non-profit entities, to support the financial readiness of the military community.
Military Saves' researched-based work to improve the saving behavior of service members, their families, and veterans is supported by the generous contributions of:
- Wells Fargo Foundation
- Pentagon Federal Credit Union
