saving for the future
This year Saver Plus reached a significant milestone.
The program has now enabled more than 50,000 lower income Australians to save around $26 million for their education costs, with ANZ providing matching of $21 million.
Program participant Daisy from Greenacre Hill in New South Wales says: “Saver Plus showed me how to save more money. Looking at my needs versus wants when shopping with my kids, I realised I can save so much more by using a list and shopping fortnightly. I’m still using the ANZ account and making deposits every single month.”
Melinda Moore, Acting Director Community Programs at Brotherhood of St Laurence (BSL), says the Saver Plus program has a lasting and sometimes life-changing impact on participants.
“Research shows many participants go on to establish a lasting savings habit that sees them achieve their financial goals and improve their financial wellbeing,” she says.
