Leigh Phillips is the CEO of SaverLife, a nonprofit helping people build financial security by providing cash prizes and other incentives for good saving habits. SaverLife supports the approximately 40 percent of Americans who don’t have at least $400 in savings, many of whom face systemic barriers to economic mobility.
By removing these obstacles and developing good financial habits, SaverLife is unlocking new possibilities for people and families living with low incomes.
Leigh delivered this speech at Stand Together Foundation’s August 2022 Catalyst Summit in Denver, Colorado to an audience of over 300 nonprofit leaders. Leigh shares her own personal story of transformation and how SaverLife brings a working-class approach to build wealth.
