On May 29, 2018, HUECU was awarded the America Saves Designation of Saving Excellence. The award is presented annually to financial institutions that make extraordinary efforts to encourage saving during America Saves Week/Military Saves Week and succeeded in encouraging customers and to open and add to wealth-building accounts.

“At a time when just two in five American households report making good or excellent savings progress, Harvard University Employees Credit Union went above and beyond to encourage and support its community to save,” said George Barany, America Saves Director. “This year’s designees are the leaders in their field at responding to the savings crisis by working directly with American families to open and add to savings accounts. Harvard University Employees Credit Union doesn’t just tell people why it’s important to save, it helps them do it.”

“As not-for-profit financial cooperative owned by our members, we have a responsibility to ensure that our members are financially healthy,” said Migdalia Gomez, Financial Education Services Specialist at HUECU. “Encouraging savings is like doctors recommending we drink more water. We know we have to do it, but always helps to hear it from a trusted partner that’s equally invested in our wellbeing.”

We are pleased to be one of 17 credit unions, 15 banks and five military-affiliated organizations receiving the designation this year. America Saves Week is coordinated by America Saves and the American Savings Education Council.

There is never a bad time to set a savings goal, make a savings plan, and save automatically. For more information and to take the pledge to save with HUECU visit
