AWM&T Receives Military Saves Award for Second Consecutive Year

Savings Champion 2023 Award Badge

AAFMAA Wealth Management & Trust LLC (AWM&T) is pleased to announce that we have received the “2023 Savings Champion Award” from Military Saves. We are one of nine organizations selected from nearly 500 to receive this distinction.

The award was a part of Military Saves Week, a national campaign to help military families save money, reduce debt, and build wealth. Hosted by Military Saves, a component of America Saves, hundreds of organizations around the world, including non-profits, military installations, and government agencies, participate to help military families increase financial readiness. 

"Our mission at AAFMAA Wealth Management & Trust is to help military families achieve and maintain financial security and independence. Whatever your financial goals, saving money is the first step to building wealth. Military Saves understands that. Partnering with Military Saves makes sense. We're proud to be part of this effort," said Steve Mannell, President of AWM&T and former Chief of Operations for the U.S. Army Special Forces Command.

The Savings Champion Award is a national recognition that honors organizations that go above and beyond the call of duty to share the importance of financial savings with the military community during Military Saves Week. Award recipients are chosen by the Military Saves selection committee, composed of staff and leadership in all of its program initiatives. The goal of participating organizations is to encourage the military community to make a commitment and savings plan through the Military Saves Pledge.

Kia McCallister-Young, Director of America Saves, shares, “We are honored to join forces and recognize organizations that understand and agree that there are many ways to mobilize and positively influence the financial habits of military families.”

Congratulations to everyone who helped us achieve this recognition, and to the other eight organizations who achieved the same.
