There’s a chance to win $750 in a sweepstakes sponsored through America Saves by promoting your healthy budget practices on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #ImSavingForSweepstakes.
Grand Rapids Community College is empowering students to create important financial habits and savings. GRCC’s financial aid department is dedicating this month to teaching strategies to track expenses, calculate discretionary incomes and monitor debt and credits.
GRCC’s sponsorship with America Saves has enabled the sweepstakes to open from Feb. 25 to March 2 for any student to participate and have the chance to win up to $750. All students are able to take the pledge to save and share their personal stories or tips on budgeting their finances using the hashtag #ImSavingForSweepstakes. Students can take the pledge here.
As part of the “Saving for the Future: Learn to Earn” series, GRCC’s financial aid department is providing students with the knowledge and tools needed in efficient money management. Developing a mindset for saving, budgeting and even professionalism are tools important for students in all walks of life.
