California has a high percentage of households with no bank account (over 7% statewide) or who use some fringe financial services (20%). These families often struggle to build savings, credit, or an emergency fund. They also lose money on fees for services like check cashing and money orders.
Through Bank On, local individuals can open a bank account with our partner financial institutions. This helps them build savings, get access to credit, and ensure their money is safe and insured. Classes are currently underway with partnerships involving three financial institutions and five community organizations.
