Save10 for Arkansas Educators

Educators do so much for our communities. We believe they deserve to invest in themselves. Thanks to a partnership with the Arkansas Department of Education, Save10 is focusing on equipping Arkansas educators with the knowledge and tools to achieve greater financial security in three key areas: debt reduction, specifically student loan debt through the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program, retirement savings, and saving for emergencies and other expected expenses.

SAVE10 FOR EDUCATORS TOOLKIT

These digital resources are designed for Arkansas educators to gain financial knowledge, have financial conversations, and make empowered financial moves. School and district leaders can share these resources digitally or facilitate professional development using the videos and discussion guides.

PAY YOURSELF FIRST TO GET TO 10% IN SAVINGS (ATRS)

We started Save10 to spread the message that we all need to save 10% of our money for our future selves, ideally in retirement savings. We know that’s a bold savings decision, but do YOU know that by being contributory in ATRS that you are 70 percent of the way there?

Start a Finance Club!

Too often, women are left out of financial conversations and decision-making, leaving us feeling unknowledgeable, intimidated, or apathetic about finances. By starting and leading a women’s finance club, you are creating space to equip and empower women to become more financially savvy and secure.

We can’t stress this enough: you do NOT have to be a financial expert to start a women’s finance club! If you are someone who wants to learn more about personal finance and invite other women to join you, you are qualified to be a finance club leader!

You can invite any women you want to join your club. You might feel nervous at first, but our experience is
that women are overwhelmingly enthusiastic about being a part of a group like this. Invite your future members with confidence!

This leader’s guide will equip you with tools and ideas to launch and lead your own club. Check it out now!
