United Way Offers Financial Support for Prospective Students

Savings, Opportunities, Assets, Results (SOAR)

The SOAR Collaborative promotes self-sufficiency among low—to moderate—income populations in Central Texas through an incentivized savings and financial literacy program. The SOAR Collaborative offers program participants Individual Development Accounts — called Boost Accounts — that are special savings accounts to assist low income people on their path toward asset ownership through a matched savings and financial education program. Boost Accounts reward the monthly savings of people who are trying to buy their first home or pay for college. For each dollar participants save towards the purchase of their asset, they will receive a match of eight (8) dollars, up to a $500 savings goal over 24 months. Participants are also required to attend financial literacy classes to learn the importance of long term assets, savings, how to budget, how to manage debt, and gain credit worthiness.
