Boston Saves launched citywide K2 kindergartners in Boston Public Schools

Students will receive children's savings accounts automatically seeded with $50 to help build their future.

Mayor Martin J. Walsh today announced the citywide expansion of Boston Saves, the City of Boston's children's savings account program, to all K2 kindergartners enrolled in Boston Public Schools (BPS). The program will provide each student with an account automatically seeded with $50 that can be used to support their future college or career training.

"Throughout its three-year pilot program, Boston Saves has proven to be an essential part of providing families with the tools to save for their children's post-secondary future," said Mayor Walsh. "I am pleased to announce the citywide expansion of Boston Saves, providing more families with these resources and strengthening the investment we are making in Boston's youth."
