Military Saves helps Military families save money every month. It also helps to convince leaders and organizations to be aggressive in promoting automatic savings. The campaign is a growing network of organizations and individuals committed to helping and supporting Military members and their loved ones build personal savings arsenals to provide for their immediate and long-term financial needs.
Military Saves was developed and tested by its nonprofit sponsor, Consumer Federation of America (CFA) and the Military services from 2003 to 2006 and launched throughout the Department of Defense (DoD) on February 25, 2007. It is part of two larger campaigns — the DoD Financial Readiness Campaign and the national America Saves campaign.
While it is an ongoing campaign, the entire Military community comes together to focus on financial readiness during Military Saves Week, the last full week in February, Sunday to Sunday.
The campaign’s lifeblood is in its partners, organizations that see the value in working together to empower members, employees, customers, and clients to become financially stable through saving, debt reduction, and wealth-building over time.
