Helping families save for their children’s education

Helping families save for their children’s education

Saver Plus, an initiative of ANZ and the Brotherhood of St Laurence, helps lower income Australian families save towards their children’s education. 

Gilliam Williams, a sole parent from Rowville in Victoria, always dreaded facing back-to-school costs for her two sons. That worry has lessened since she took part in Saver Plus. "I had recently become a sole parent and visited Centrelink for the first time in my life," Gilliam said. "I saw the Saver Plus brochure and thought it was a no-brainer."

"I managed to save $50 a month. At first it was hard to save. Where could I find that extra money? But the program taught me a lot, especially about budgeting," Gilliam said. "I did it, and I've continued to save. Being in control of my finances has completely boosted my confidence and I feel like I can do anything now."

Australia’s leading financial education and matched savings program, Saver Plus has helped around 20,000 participants develop a savings habit. Participants set a savings goal, save regularly and attend financial education workshops. ANZ matches savings dollar-for-dollar up to $500.
