This event will be a live, virtual informational event about Lansing SAVE and will have representatives from the community and school district. Lansing SAVE includes all students in the Lansing School District from grades K-6, and is a savings account that helps students save for college/post-secondary education as well as provide financial education to the students throughout their time at Lansing schools. One of the best parts — it’s absolutely free! Have questions before the event? Contact us at lansingsave@msufcu.org. We hope to see you there.
