Columbus Saves Week
February 25, 2007 - March 4, 2007
Columbus Saves Week is a new initiative aimed at bringing together hundreds of Columbus area institutions and organizations in a concerted effort to increase awareness. Our goal is to promote greater household savings and reduced debt so that greater Columbians are building wealth. Based in part on Money Saves Weeks organized by the Chicago Federal Reserve Bank, it will serve as the pilot for Saves Weeks around the country and, perhaps eventually, inspiration for a National savings month endorsed by the United States Congress. The primary focus of Columbus Saves Week is to encourage Financial Action commitments to save, invest and build wealth.
We invite you to become involved with Columbus Saves Week. To join this dynamic new initiative, please call us at 614.793.4631.
Roll Your Change Week
October 15-20, 2007
Did you know that there is over $10 billion dollars in loose change sitting in homes and cars across America not earning a nickel of interest? That breaks down to approximately $99 of loose change per family!
During the week of October 15-20, 2007, you are invited to participate in our 5th Annual Roll Your Change Week! The purpose of this weeklong event is to draw attention to the large amount of change in everyone's home and cars, and to increase awareness about saving money. We are encouraging all greater Columbians to make a deposit of rolled change.
So, pull your change out of the jars and bottles you've been tossing it in for years… check the ashtrays and cup holders in your cars. During this week, take your loose change and deposit it so it can start working for you… and not just taking up space in your car, your shelves, your closet….
