Fund My Future is now STATEWIDE

Due to our great success in Propel Schools and Allegheny County with nearly 4,000 families currently participating, we recently formed a new collaboration with Pennsylvania State Treasurer, Joe Torsella. Now all families across Pennsylvania can participate in this one-of-a-kind children’s savings program. As a result of this AWESOME collaboration we now have an increased monthly prize pool of $8,000 available to all participants.
In addition to the increased prize pool, Fund My Future participants will enroll by simply taking the PA Savings Pledge as a reminder of their reason for saving. Those not enrolled can simply go to fundmyfuturepa.org and take the PA Savings Pledge. Monthly raffle tickets are sent by email, giving everyone a chance to win. Prizes are awarded to those with winning tickets as long as they have made a deposit of at least $1 into their child’s savings account.
