Big dreams start with small savings

Creating solutions to America's savings crisis

Saving provides stability in financial emergencies, mitigates inequality, and promotes economic mobility.

Families with a savings cushion of just $250 to $749 are less likely to be evicted, miss a payment, or receive public benefits after a financial shock like losing a job.

71% of children born to high-saving, low-income parents move up from the bottom quartile over a generation. 

 

The simple act of saving money is transformative.

Our programs kickstart a habit of saving.

Meet Our Savers

EARN Savers beat the odds

Our Savers are typically asset-poor, do not have a history of saving, and are unable to take advantage of the tools and services that build wealth. Despite their struggles, EARN Savers save an average of $50/month, boosting their economic security and creating prosperity for themselves and their families.
