MATCH SAVINGS PROGRAM
Helping individuals and families build income and assets
Low-income families face especially high barriers in building assets and developing wealth.
These barriers are partly due to challenges with accessing capital, labor market segregation, and extractive practices and policies. This is especially evident for communities of color. By starting a United Way-supported Matched Savings Program, individuals can build their assets through match savings for emergencies, homeownership, post-secondary education, and small business expansion.
A gift to United Way can help a family stay afloat during a financial crisis, purchase their first home, get an education or grow their business.
