Gosia Tomaszewska has been hired as the program manager for Boston Saves, the City of Boston’s children savings account program. Tomaszewska brings to her new role years of experience working on financial education programs with the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, the Midas Collaborative and the United Way of Massachusetts Bay & Merrimack Valley.

“I am excited to play a part of a program that, at its heart, is about economic justice,” Tomaszewska said. “Boston Saves helps to level the field for Boston’s kids by making it easier for their families to save for their education. As both an asset-building professional and the parent of a child who will start kindergarten in Boston in 2019, I know Boston Saves is a worthwhile long-term investment in our kids and our city.”

Tomaszewska, a resident of Brighton, has served on the Board of the Allston Brighton Community Development Corporation since 2012.  She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Rutgers University, Master of Arts from Jagiellonian University in Poland, and a Graduate Certificate from the University of Massachusetts Boston.

Boston Saves, which helps families save money for their children’s college or career training, is midway through the second year of its three-year pilot. Currently, eleven BPS schools participate in the program, which will begin roll-out citywide in Fall 2019.
