Welcome to “Her Money”
“Her Money,” a unique and innovative FISC program, will help you and your daughter increase your savings and improve your spending habits.
Our approach combines financial education with a cash incentive for every dollar you save. The incentive includes a “two-for-one” matched savings account. You are eligible for up to a $400 match, and your daughter (or son) up to $100. You can save for any financial goal of your choosing — from saving for a “rainy day” to saving for family vacation, and everything in between. By providing both support and incentives, we can help you and your family make saving a lifetime habit.
You & your daughter will learn how to:
- Start and build savings
- Establish personal and family financial goals
- Begin and maintain a meaningful dialogue about money
- Improve your credit score
- Access information about tax preparation options and earned credits
