Amplify your savings
Monday, December 25, 2017
Saving money isn’t easy. In a recent survey, 62 percent of Americans reported they had less than $1,000 in their savings accounts. Twenty-one percent didn’t even have a savings account.
Having an incentive to save can help. The Dakota Dream Savings Fund is geared towards helping people put away enough money for a home down payment. The fund gives a $3 match for every $1 saved, up to $2,000. If participants save $2,000, they have $8,000 to put towards a home purchase.
