North Carolina Saves (NC Saves)

North Carolina Saves (NC Saves), a statewide affiliate of the national America Saves campaign, encourages residents of the state to establish a savings goal and to open a savings account at a financial institution. The goal of the campaign is to encourage North Carolinians to create a culture of savings in our state by starting small and aiming big.

By joining NC Saves, enrollees will have access to information and tools that will support them in becoming more knowledgeable about financial matters, from auto loans to education and retirement savings. Enrollees will receive a bi-monthly financial newsletter, and gain access to a professional who will respond to their questions. They will have an opportunity to submit their own savings or personal finance story.

Why Give

Your gift helps break the cycle of poverty in North Carolina and creates a state where all have the opportunity to move up the economic ladder. Income is important, but it is not enough. Individuals and households can build assets when financial education is available in communities across the state - we all need to know how to choose consumer friendly financial products and steer clear of high cost, predatory services. You can move more people toward economic security by investing in The Collaborative.
