Military Saves sponsors three awards for organizations participating in Military Saves Week.
The Military Saves Designation of Savings Excellence (DOSE), the Savings Champion Award, and the Community Impact Award. The DOSE and Savings Champion Award are annual industry-respected awards that recognize organizations who effectively and actively promote saving strategies during Military Saves Week.
New in 2023 is the Community Impact Award. This award recognizes organizations who effectively promote taking the Military Saves Pledge to their audiences.
About the Designation of Savings Excellence Award
Banks and Credit Unions play an important role in Military Saves Week by making it easy for their customers and members to save. When individuals utilize saving accounts they build financial security and financial institutions increase deposits, build goodwill, and strengthen relationships.
That’s why we recognize financial institutions that show exceptional achievement in Military Saves Week activities by awarding them the Designation of Savings Excellence.
Designees are recognized by:

Every Military Saves Week, hundreds of participating organizations around the world, including non-profits, military installations, and government agencies, go the extra mile to help military families save money and assess their financial habits. We want to recognize those organizations who go above and beyond during Military Saves Week with our Savings Champion Award.
