The Connecticut Saves Campaign is coordinated by UConn Extension with the support of partnering agencies and organizations. Together they promote saving behavior through financial education and social marketing.

Set a Goal. Make a Plan. Take Action.


Developing workshops for new audiences and working with people facing financial challenges are special area of focus.
