Meet Our April $1000 Winner
April’s $1000 Winner
“With all the negativity of COVID-19 and my daughter not being able to have her senior graduation experience, being a $1000 winner really brightened my daughter’s college future.” Mrs. Lisa Falgione
Mrs. Lisa Falgione resides in Allegheny County and has been saving for her daughter Julia, a graduating senior and honors student at Shaler Area High School. As a high school student, Julia works part-time at McDonald’s and also works part-time at The Hartwood Restaurant. Mrs. Falgione joined Fund My Future in 2018 during America Saves Week. She learned about PA-529 through a family friend and has been saving for her daughter’s education through a PA-529 Savings Account that she began when Julia was born. She does automatic withdrawals from her paycheck so that she never misses a deposit.
Julia has been accepted to The University of Pittsburgh-Greensburg and will be majoring in Biology. Ms. Falgione plans to use her $500 check towards her daughter’s schooling and is excited to have the additional $500 go directly into her daughter’s PA-529 Savings Account. This is the second time Mrs. Falgione has won with Fund My Future. The first time she won $50. She was very excited then, but being the $1000 Winner takes her excitement to another level.

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.
