Madison Youth Savings Account (MYSA)
In the summer of 2018, the City of Madison contracted with David Grace and Associates to examine the feasibility of launching a child savings account. This program would offer MMSD students, particularly those with lower incomes, the opportunity to enroll in a savings account dedicated to post high school educational plans. Grace’s study overwhelmingly supported the implementation of a MYSA. To date, the mayor has expressed interest in the program and the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce has included it in their 2019-2020 legislative agenda.
Use your voice, let the city know they can make a difference by investing in the future of our kids.
Share with them how you could benefit.
