‘Sharing Lives’: Spring 2016 Edition

Share Partners with Clark College Foundation to Provide 8:1 Savings Match for Students

“I like to take challenges and try new things,” said Sameayah. “One day, I’d like to open my own early childhood education center.”

Which is why Sameayah was a great candidate for a new opportunity through our Individual Savings Account (IDA) Program: Share and Clark College Foundation have partnered to provide an 8:1 savings match for students who qualify for the Share IDA Program. Students agree to save $500 and will be matched with $4,000 for tuition, books, and fees that will be paid directly to Clark College.

“It’s a very beneficial program that teaches you how to be a better saver and manage your assets,” shared Sameayah. “It’s not just saving, you have to work and learn from the process, which has been inspiring for me.” Click here to read more about Sameayah and our IDA Program.
