Ways to Participate in America Saves Week February 19-26, 2012
America Saves Week (ASW) 2012 is fast approaching. This year
the dates for the Week are February 19-26, 2012. We have updated
Social Media Campaign document for ASW 2012/a>. The document
contains Facebook postings along with sample blog posts.
Searching for other ways to participate in the Week? ICFE
encourages you to look into the Bonds Make
It Easy Campaign sponsored by ASEC Partner Doorway 2 Dreams
Foundation. The Bonds Make It Easy web site provides you with
free promotion materials you may use for spreading the word
among your employees, colleagues, clients, partners, family, and
friends on saving at least a portion of their tax refund with
Series I Bonds provided by the U.S. Government. Treasury Direct
provides you with an
FAQ page f for further information on these bonds.
The Week provides an opportunity for all of us to set aside
some time to review our finances and look for ways to improve
our financial lives.
1) Set your goal - What is it you want to achieve:
retirement, child's education, emergency savings?
If your organization has not yet signed-up to
participate in the Week please do so at the
Sign-Up page on the ASW web site.
2) Develop a plan - What are the steps you will need to
take to achieve your goal?
3) Save automatically - Contact your financial
institution, find out which product is suitable for your goal,
and set-up automatic savings.
