Mission Statement

Our Goal is to encourage and motivate all Delaware Valley residents to save money and build wealth and assets. We especially want to help low-and-moderate income individuals realize that it is possible to build wealth on a limited income. Ultimately, Philadelphia Saves wants to increase the rate of savings for the Delaware Valley region and turn the tide against the ever-increasing rise in consumer debt.

Description

Through information, advice, and encouragement, Philadelphia Saves assists people who wish to pay down debt, build an emergency fund, or save for a home, education, investment, or retirement in order to improve their standard of living and most importantly, gain peace of mind.

Modeled after the nationwide campaign, America Saves, Philadelphia Saves arose out of the need to help Delaware Valley residents deal with social and economic challenges. An estimated one in 12 American households has "negative wealth," meaning that debt exceeds assets. In order to reverse this trend we believe it is necessary to provide everyone with a plan to reach financial goals and build assets.

Whatever your financial goal, be it, homeownership, debt reduction, education, retirement, or a whole host of others...we can help!

All of the Philadelphia Saves benefits are absolutely FREE! All you have to do is select a savings goal and a plan to reach it, open a savings account (or use an existing account), and make monthly deposits. Philadelphia Saves will send you an e-mail in three months to see how you are doing. It's that easy.

Also, keep in mind that you control your savings account. You open the account. It is in your name. You receive the statements. We only advise and encourage.
