Savings-Related Resources

Savings enable consumers to withstand unexpected expenses or income disruptions, in addition to also funding large expenditures, such as the purchase of a home or college education. Research indicates that people who save have better relationships with family and neighbors and increased community involvement.

Here are several other savings-related resources for financial institutions, community-based organizations, and others.
