Galloway, N.J. - As part of America Saves Week 2017, scheduled for today – March 4, the Stockton Center for Economic & Financial Literacy, the Stockton Office of Human Resources, and the Stockton Office of Financial Aid are spreading the saving message and urging Stockton and the community to set up automatic savings as part of their savings and investing plans.

“America Saves Week is a great opportunity to help people in our community to set a goal, make a plan, and save automatically,” said Elizabeth Elmore, professor of Economics and director of the Center for Economic & Financial Literacy.

To encourage people to save more and more successfully, Stockton is partnering with the New Jersey Coalition for Financial and Economic Education  to support NJ Saves.

America Saves Week is coordinated by America Saves and the America Savings Education Council.  The week is an annual opportunity for organizations to promote good savings behavior and a chance for individuals to assess their own saving status. Learn more at and take the savings pledge at
