America Saves Week

America Saves Week 2021 is February 22 to 26
Encouraging Americans to Save

America Saves Week

America Saves Week is an annual celebration and call to action for Americans to commit to saving successfully. Since the onset of the coronavirus (COVID-19) public health emergency, millions of Americans have experienced a loss of income. America Saves Week is the perfect time to get a clear view of your finances, set your financial goals and make a plan to achieve them.

Through the support of over 1700 organizations, the initiative encourages local communities, families and individuals to examine their finances and rethink their saving behaviors. It all happens with the America Saves pledge that allows savers to set goals and make plans to achieve better financial stability.

America Saves Week is February 22 - 26, 2021. During the week, the Office of Financial Empowerment and Education (OFEE) will help residents of the District with a series of free events focusing on the following themes. Follow us on Twitter (@DCDISB and @BankonDC) and Facebook (@DISBDC) :
