Description

For years we’ve been warned to save for the emergency that’s just around the corner. While the phrases “emergency savings” and “rainy day funds” are commonly used, both presume that emergencies are bad — and that’s not entirely true. On this day we’ll encourage individuals to instead shift from saving for emergencies to saving for opportunities with their family members. We’ll focus on the lessons to instill in our youth that lead to financially confident adults, including:

  • thinking like a saver from a young age
  • having age-appropriate money conversations
  • understanding the building blocks of financial stability (owning an account, utilizing direct deposit)
