Fund My Future is a program administered by the Propel Schools Foundation to help families of children in Allegheny County to save for college and other post-secondary goals. Fund My Future provides a prize pool that makes the saving experience fun. Community events with partners make it easy to save in a variety of ways and places.
With support from both the Mayor of Pittsburgh and the Allegheny County Executive, Fund My Future is now universally available to all Allegheny County families with children, from birth to age 18.
This is what some families have said about participating in Fund My Future:
“My son actually comes to me and says we need to deposit. This makes me take [saving for college] more seriously and think about it more on a continuous basis.”
The ritual of making Fund My Future deposits “gives me a reason to tell my first grader the importance of saving for college.”
In order to participate, any adult over 18 can sign in to the Fund My Future portal and provide the name of each child. In order to be eligible for various raffle prizes, you must make a deposit into an existing bank account or open a new one to be eligible. One $1,000 prize and thirty $50 prizes are up for grabs every month.
