Locally, we focus on supporting anchor institutions that promote Springfield as a vibrant destination to live, learn, and work. Anchor institution investments are proactively determined and enhance economic opportunity by building a successful education ecosystem and strengthening the city of Springfield.
Nationally, we focus on financial education. Our investments aim to increase the financial knowledge and capability of over two million middle and high school students by 2020 with our FutureSmartSM program, as well as through local partnerships in the cities where we operate: Boston, Enfield, Memphis, Phoenix and Springfield. By beginning the conversation with students early, we help them learn the importance of savings, staying in school, going to college, career planning, and how each has a profound impact on their future financial success.
