Together Credit Union to open a new savings account for a local student for every save by St. Louis CITY SC

ST. LOUIS, MO (February 22, 2023) — Together Credit Union and St. Louis CITY SC are partnering on a new community-driven program called Saves for Savings. For every save CITY SC makes during the 2023 regular season, Together Credit Union will open a $300 savings account for a local student.

“The Saves for Savings program is one of the many ways we are helping local students pursue financial independence,” said Tom Kraus, Together Credit Union’s Chief Operating Officer. “We are excited to join players, fans, and the community count every save achieved on matchday.”

Saves for Savings is led by Roman Bürki, CITY SC goalkeeper and first-ever captain, and kicks off on Saturday, February 25, at 7:30 PM, when CITY SC takes the pitch at the Q2 Stadium against Austin FC.

“Financial independence is a process, and we are excited to continue working with CITY SC to create educational opportunities that reach local teens in an accessible, relatable way,” added Kraus.

In addition to the Saves for Savings program, Together Credit Union and CITY SC have partnered on financial wellness initiatives benefitting teens, ages 13-18 years old, to help educate them on matters of finance like managing a budget, the basics of credit and the importance of saving. This includes monthly seminars hosted by Together Credit Union and CITY SC and the launch of Zogo*. This financial wellness app is free and open to the public, and includes 700+ bite-sized, action-based lessons on various financial wellness topics. (Use access code: CITY)
