Saver Plus – help with education costs

Have you heard about Saver Plus? 

It’s a free matched-savings and financial education program offered locally by Bethany Community Support. Saver Plus assists individuals and families on lower incomes to build their savings for educational costs and improve their financial management skills.

Saver Plus:

  • Matches savings for education costs dollar-for-dollar up to $500
  • Includes fun and informal financial education workshops
  • Provides assistance and support to establish a savings goal and develop a savings habit

Participants make regular deposits towards a savings goal over a 10-month period and attend workshops to build their financial management skills. When participants reach their savings goal, ANZ matches the amount – up to $500 – towards education costs including uniforms, text books, laptops, sports equipment, music tuition, TAFE or apprenticeship costs, and much more.

With the start of the 2018 school year just around the corner, now is a great time to get involved. Please call us on (03) 5278 8122 to register your interest or find out more.
