Savings in America

Financial literacy and financial stability are at the forefront of most Americans’ minds today. The current financial crisis has driven home how close most Americans really are to financial distress and poverty. Financial literacy is critical for our society, yet it remains a significant hurdle for Americans of all incomes – from those living in poverty to middle class families.


You owe it to yourself and your family to take active steps towards becoming financially successful and stable. The Allstate Foundation and Dress for Success want to help you get started. Make a My Dollar, My Life promise to improve your financial future, and The Allstate Foundation will donate $1 to Grameen America. Help us reach our goal of donating $10,000.
