Webinar promotes savings to help people reach goals

As part of America Saves Week 2021, scheduled for Feb. 22-26, Ohio Saves and OSU Extension professionals are encouraging their communities to take a moment to focus on the importance of emergency savings and saving automatically, in an effort to better prepare Americans for the unexpected, like the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since 2007 America Saves Week, coordinated by America Saves and its partners, has been an annual celebration and call to action for everyday Americans to commit to saving successfully. Through the support of thousands of participating organizations, members of local communities are encouraged to do a check on their finances and saving behaviors.

The America Saves pledge is the framework that allows savers to set a goal and make a plan to achieve better financial stability.

OSU Extension professionals, in partnership with Ohio Saves, are offering a number of free financially focused Zoom presentations as part of America Saves Week.
