SMART Savings Goals
Community Financial’s Education Partnership Coordinators help to educate students beyond just saving their money. One program highlight is helping student members have a SMART goal. SMART is an acronym for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely. Each student credit union member receives a goal sheet at the beginning of the year where they can track a specific savings goal.
Student members save their money for various reasons. Some have large savings goals, like paying for college or a down payment for a car, while others want to save for smaller things like a new toy or adventure. Having a SMART savings goal is important for students to see their goals being met monthly. When students have achieved their savings goal for the year, they are awarded with a prize at the Student-Run Credit Union for their efforts!
