Consumer Federation of America's Military Saves
share this page
The Consumer Federation of America (CFA) is an association of nonprofit consumer organizations that was established in 1968 to advance the consumer interest through research, advocacy, and education. Today, nearly 300 of these groups participate in the federation and govern it through their representatives on the organization’s Board of Directors.
Military Saves, a component of the nonprofit America Saves, seeks to motivate, support, and encourage military families to save money, reduce debt, and build wealth. The research-based campaign coordinated by the CFA, uses the principles of behavioral economics and social marketing to change behavior. Military Saves encourages the entire military community to take the Military Saves pledge and for organizations to promote savings year-round, and especially during Military Saves Month in April. They also work with government agencies, defense credit unions, military banks, and other nonprofit organizations to promote savings and debt reduction.
