In December 2013, Doorways to Dreams (D2D) Fund hosted a Ford Foundation Grantee Convening focused on Emergency Savings Products and Alternatives. The day provided an opportunity to delve into a discussion on emergency savings and address the need for product innovation and consumer-centric design to help low- and moderate-income (LMI) consumers manage financial emergencies and move towards financial security.
