Bankrate.com reports that nearly half of Americans could not handle a $500 emergency using the cash they have on hand. This makes those consumers vulnerable to predatory lending and chronic financial fragility. Project GREEN wants to change that.
Project GREEN’s vision is “turning everyday people into money heroes.” Through our 500 Strong initiative, our goal is to equip 500 individuals to save $500 by December 2021. We will walk with participants to provide financial literacy, savings tips, and matching dollars! For every $100 that you save, Project GREEN will match with $25. After you have saved $400 + $100 from Project GREEN, you end up with $500 saved. If you would like to learn more, click here to contact us.
