The City & County Of San Francisco And Citi Community Development Receive 2013 Excellence Award In Public-Private Partnerships From U.S. Conference Of Mayors

Children with savings accounts are seven times more likely to attend college, according to research. Even modest savings have been shown to not only provide children with a foundation to begin paying for their educations, but childhood exposure to basic money management helps to build the financial skills they will need throughout their lives. Over the course of a lifetime, individuals with college degrees earn up to 75 percent more than those with just high school diplomas – nearly $1 million more in total.

Kindergarten to College began as a two-year pilot launched by the Office of the Mayor and the Office of the Treasurer in San Francisco along with the Department of Children, Youth and their Families, the San Francisco Unified School District and a number of non-profit organizations, including CFED, EARN, the San Francisco Foundation and the New America Foundation. In 2012, Mayor Edwin M. Lee and the Board of Supervisors approved funding to expand the pilot into a permanent universal savings program.
