With your help, we are building a foundation for financial literacy and empowering young girls to be thoughtful spenders, generous givers, and successful savers.

Save, share, spend is the basic idea that earned money is taken and divided among each of these areas instead of spending it immediately. As a financial goal, girls are challenged to deposit $10 a week into the designated envelope. Staff will track individual deposits from October-April and deposit those funds into a larger savings that will be returned to the girls at the end of the year.

Community leaders have already shown their excitement for this program and they are working with the Brigade to become more involved. Upon the successful fundraising of $2,500 from Brigade, Fox Communities Credit Union has pledged $2,500 to the Save, Share, Spend program with a $2,500 match from the J. J. Keller Foundation. Help us meet the fundraising goal of $2,500!

By using a simple save, share, spend principle the Boys’ & Girls’ Brigade in Neenah, along with the help of community members, is building a foundation for financial literacy and empowering young girls to be thoughtful spenders, generous givers, and successful savers.

 “If we can show the girls their saving potential at a young age, they are more likely to be financially secure and make smart money decisions once they step into the real world,” says Marnie Spielbauer, Boys’ & Girls’ Brigade’s Program Director.

During the 20-week program, girls will deposit money to the program director.
Here’s what happens at the end of the program in April:

Brigade Girl deposits $5/WeekTotal deposit = $100

  • Save total was $25 plus a $25 match = $50 returned to her
  • Share total was $5 plus a $5 match = $10 donated to charity
  • Spend total was $70 plus a $35 match = $105 returned to Brigader
  • $100 in deposits returns to Brigader as $155!
