Who We Are

MassSaves provides financial education, resources and advocacy for individuals and families looking to achieve financial stability and build wealth. 


MassSaves is a broad volunteer-based network of public and private stakeholders including financial educators, providers, community organizations and advocates. We work with youth and adults to improve the quality and delivery of financial education across the state with a vision to make Massachusetts a national model for financial confidence and empowerment. Our coalition members are passionate about some area of wealth or asset development, including financial education, personal finance, safe and affordable financial products, or economic security and justice issues. 


MassSaves is a program of The Midas Collaborative, a statewide nonprofit organization that promotes financial education and asset-building programs and projects, including www.MassSaves.org
