The recent economic crises has made parents more aware and concerned about their child’s financial future. The National Financial Educators Council launched the SavingsFund platform to help families to save for their child’s future and prepare them for the financial real world.
SavingsFund is a platform that families can set up for their child to receive financial gifts for birthdays and holidays. Friends and loved ones can give monetary gifts securely online that will go toward a child’s college education, retirement and long-term savings.
“The goal with SavingsFund was to give loved ones a way to give a meaningful gift to a child. As the child grows and starts their adult life, friends and family can feel like they gave a gift that truly helped the child instead of a toy that was thrown in the garbage,” states Vince Shorb, CEO of the NFEC
Families can register their gift receiving site for their child in three steps. Set up a secure profile page for their child. Share this with who they choose. And lastly receive the financial gifts for their child’s college education or financial security. All that register are enrolled in a complimentary financial education program – so as they grow their SavingsFund, they also improve their financial capabilities.
The National Financial Educators Council is a social enterprise organization dedicated to improving the savings rates and financial capabilities of families across the country. SavingsFund provides complimentary financial literacy resources so families can avoid common money issues and achieve a state of financial wellness.
