At United Way, we think having a savings account is a good idea.
Not only do we think it is a good idea, but we think it is an integral part of helping people get out of poverty. Here are two examples:
With this in mind, we are proud to be a partner with EARN and Treasurer, José Cisneros and the San Francisco Office of Financial Empowerment on SaverLife San Francisco, a transformative community movement to increase financial stability and emergency savings in the Bay Area.
By joining SaverLife, Bay Area residents can kick start their savings. Participants will receive weekly savings tips from a financial coach, so they can start saving right away. If they save just $20 per month, for six months, they’ll be rewarded with up to $60.
SaverLife is available to every resident in the nine Bay Area counties.
