On June 10 and 17, Budget for Life volunteers, staff and participants alike rallied together for graduation ceremonies celebrating the participants in what Budget for Life volunteer Rebecca Clements calls a "transformative, empowering" program. This year's classes paid off a total of $202,139 in debt--the largest amount of debt paid off by a Budget for Life class to date! The class also saved $72,724. In addition, BCM added a dollar for dollar savings match of up to $1,000!

Please join us in celebrating these accomplishments and continuing to keep the group in mind as they enter Phase II of the program, the Savings Match, this month.
