JOIN US FOR AMERICA SAVES WEEK 2022
Since 2007 America Saves Week has been an annual celebration as well as a call to action for everyday Americans to commit to saving successfully. Through the support of thousands of participating organizations, together we encourage individuals to do a financial check-in that allows them to get a clear view of the finances, set savings goals, and create a plan to achieve them.
Each day will have a theme that centers on one of 5 critical areas of financial wellness; only this year, we’ll approach those themes through the lens of supporting individuals as they build financial resilience. Join us each day for a video or virtual presentation around this year’s theme. RSVP today.
BUILDING FINANCIAL RESILIENCE
Over the past two years, we’ve all experienced some significant setbacks. Currently, most everyday Americans, particularly low-to-moderate income earners, are focused on recovering from the economic effects of the pandemic. That’s why America Saves Week 2022 has one single focus: Building Financial Resilience.
Being financially resilient is more than having access to money; it includes being conscious of your own financial landscape, being aware of available resources, and being willing to seek out and take advantage of opportunities that will support and increase your financial wellness.
We’ll also address socio-economic barriers that affect the ability of many Americans to save. Together, thousands of organizations and institutions will amplify information, resources, and tools that will allow individuals and families to take action toward building financial confidence.
