Crave 2 Save for a better tomorrow

47% of Americans at every income level don’t have $400 in savings! When you don’t have credit and you’re out of favors, things can spiral out of control fast. Together, we can help break the cycle of poverty by rallying entire communities to curb the craving to spend and start saving today for a better tomorrow.

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. (Solano, Yolo, Contra Costa, Merced)

You can help your favorite county and charity win!

Open a Travis Savings Account, break the $400 barrier, attend a free financial workshop – it all adds up for your community and for you! Simply stop by any of our local branches and get started today. Be sure to tell them that you’re supporting the Crave 2 Save challenge!
