Saver Plus

Saver Plus is a free matched savings and financial education program that matches participants’ savings, dollar for dollar, up to $500, for education costs such as uniforms, books, school trips, sports fees and laptops.

About Saver Plus

Saver Plus was developed by Brotherhood of St Laurence and ANZ in 2003 and is delivered in Tasmania by The Smith Family. It is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services and ANZ.

Participants set a savings goal for education costs, make regular deposits into a savings account over 10 months, and attend financial skills workshops. At the end of the program their savings are matched by ANZ, dollar for dollar, up to $500, to be used for education costs such as uniforms, books, excursions, sports fees, laptops and more.
