"Anything we can do to raise personal savings is very much in the interest of this country." ~Alan Greenspan
Virginia Saves encourages all Virginians, to make a commitment to increased savings and reducing debt. Savers choose their own financial institution to maintain their savings, while Virginia Saves offers information and encouragement to continue to make savings a priority.
If individuals start moving down the path to savings, then the whole country will place greater importance on savings. Parents, schools, employers, financial institutions, government agencies, the press, and nonprofit groups will increasingly focus attention on wealth-building and assist those they service to do so. As a result, it will become much easier for everyone to save and build wealth.
Virginia Saves builds self-sufficiency, reduces dependency on community resources, reverses the trend of high interest debt, and empowers savers to reach their financial goals through healthy money management. Virginia Saves helps savers remain focused on building savings and reducing debt through e-newsletters, web articles and social media postings.
