Ohio Saves

Set a Goal. Make a Plan. Save Automatically. Ohio Saves

Ohio Saves is an America Saves campaign to encourage every Ohioan to save money, reduce debt, and build wealth. There are both "savers" and "spenders" in all income levels. Which one are you? Studies have shown that saving even a bit of money can drastically contribute to personal wealth in the long term.

By saving money through a workplace retirement program and setting up different savings accounts for specific financial goals, for example to buy a home, most people can accumulate six-figure assets.

The goal of the Ohio Saves campaign is to convince all Ohioans that they can build wealth and to assist them to do just that.

So, enroll to be a saver by completing our pledge, start saving, help others save, and encourage friends and family to do the same!

Ohio State University Extension is hosting two webinars on savings topics during Ohio Saves week, check out the details below!  You can also visit for more information.
