Crave 2 Save Challenge

What’s the Crave 2 Save Challenge all about?

We’re inspiring people at every age and income level in our communities to save $400 for a better tomorrow by providing hope and a solid financial strategy to help them achieve their goals.

County Challenge

Two nonprofits in each of the counties listed below are partnering with Travis Credit Union to help people learn how to save for life’s emergencies. Now through Dec. 31, 2017 counties compete to earn a grant of $75,000 to be shared by two nonprofit partners so they can do even more work in their respective communities to end the cycle of poverty.
