Are you an Alabama Saver? | Events
The Alabama Cooperative Extension System and its Alabama Saves Coalition members are preparing for Alabama Saves Week Feb. 19 through 26.
Alabama Saves Week coincides with the national observance of America Saves Week. Extension Consumer Science and Personal Financial Management agents conduct events and activities to encourage financial literacy throughout the year.
During Alabama Saves Week, there is an expanded effort to increase awareness of the need to save money, reduce debt and build wealth with a primary focus on taking financial action – making commitments to save, invest and build wealth. Activities are conducted through partnerships with nonprofit organizations, companies, government agencies, educational institutions, religious institutions, community groups and others.
This year's theme is "Set a Goal, Make a Plan, Save Automatically". Saving automatically is the best strategy for savers. There are many different ways to save, but one of the most effective ways is to save automatically by agreeing in advance to transfer funds regularly from a paycheck or checking to savings or investments.
