This campaign is raising funds on behalf of Architecture For Humanity, a verified nonprofit.

All contributions are considered unrestricted gifts and can't be specified for any particular purpose.

Thank you for finding us on Indiegogo and expressing interest in our idea!


Our Mission:

Getting people to save for the long term is difficult, but it is necessary for future well-being. The biggest deterrent to convincing many people to save money is that there is no immediate satisfaction; retirement, a mortgage on a house, or a future family seem like distant goals, so saving for the future gets put off to satisfy immediate needs and wants. Saving is perceived as a chore with no immediate, tangible results. Our goal is to change this perception of saving so that people start saving earlier and contribute more often.


Who Are We?

We are a group of Design MFA students at California College of the Arts who are interested in motivating people to think beyond the present, and to save for their long-term goals.


How Do We Work?

We have designed a business idea that pairs long-term savings contributions with short-term rewards. We call it PERK, and it works like this:


1. Your employer signs up with PERK.

2. When you start a new job, or when you decide that it’s time to start saving, you are offered the opportunity to enroll in PERK.

3. PERK makes sure that a predetermined amount (for example, 5%) of whatever percentage your employer adds to your 401 K goes into an account called REWARDS.

4. REWARDS is an account that you can access any time you want to buy something.

5. You can also access the PERK website to select from a wide range of vouchers from our partnering retailers that are available exclusively to PERK members.


This way you save for your future while accumulating some guilt-free money to buy what you want now.

Save with PERK & make saving REWARDING!
