21st Century Solution

Posted on Feb 22, 2013 by Caitlin McShane

NBC Bay Area awarded Opportunity Fund $50,000 to support our microsavings program through its first-ever "21st Century Solutions" grant competition. We are thrilled to receive this funding, which will allow so many more low-income families to enroll in our savings program! 

 

As part of the grant, CEO Eric Weaver was interviewed by NBC's Damian Trujillo. Watch the clip below (skip to 1:07).

It was such a great experience! Here's Eric receiving the giant check with NBC Bay Area's Damian Trujillo and Lance Lew (always fun).
