November $1000 Winner – Ms. Tracy Copeland

Tracy Copeland was eligible to win the November $1000 Drawing because she was holding the winning ticket and most importantly, her daughter Malaika made a deposit of $5.00 into her savings account. Ms. Copeland’s November winning also qualified her to receive the “Spirit of Giving” where Fund My Future matched her winning amount and donated it to a nonprofit organization of her choice.

Ms. Copeland chose to donate her matched $1000 to S.A.L.T Pittsburgh (Save A Life Today Pittsburgh) a nonprofit organization that serves low-income families and a host of other social service needs.

Ms. Copeland started saving for her daughter Malaika about 2 – 3 years ago because she wanted her daughter to be better prepared for her educational future. Malaika is currently a Sophomore at Propel Montour High School and every Thursday she deposits money into her bank account.

Ms. Copeland loves the fact that her daughter is getting hands-on experience of saving money and believes it’s something that Malaika will be able to take with her into her adulthood.
