  • United Way, California Capital Region, is addressing the woeful lack of financial literacy in America by introducing the concept of saving to the very youngest students--kindergarteners! With a seed of $25 donated to each student's account, they kicked off the college savings of these youngsters and their families. The Young Leaders Society that launched this program know they're on the right track. Studies show that if a child has even a small amount saved for college, he or she is three times more likely to attend and four times more likely to graduate. So, they partnered with SAFE Credit Union and California Assemblymember Kevin McCarty to offer the K2C Program. The class of 2030 will certainly thank them! http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vMeYX

    Its Never too Early to Start Saving - United Way California Capital Region

    Say hello to the future graduating class of 2030! These kids pictured here from Robla, Taylor Street, and Bell Avenue Elementary Schools just opened college savings accounts through K2C. These kindergartners, and others like them, are going to change our world. They will one day attend universities and colleges to study sciences, languages, history, trade, and the arts.
