"A Foot in the Door" Premieres in San Francisco

This evening, the San Francisco Office of the Treasury will host an exclusive screening of Kindergarten to College's premiere mini-documentary, "A Foot in the Door."

The 17-minute video, produced by Prosperity Now, Citi Community Development, the San Francisco Office of Financial Empowerment, GroundSpark and Citizen Film, tells the story of Kindergarten to College, the first universal children's savings account program in the country. Piloted by the City and County of San Francisco, the program automatically provides a college savings account to children when they start kindergarten.

The film was developed for policy advocates, government agencies, nonprofit service providers and others to help make the case for universal CSA programs as an essential method for helping children build assets at a young age to ensure their full participation in higher education and the financial mainstream. The event will take place from 5:30pm to 8:00pm in the Brava Theater Center.

The September debut during the Assets Learning Conference was met with applause and praise for the groundbreaking work being done in San Francisco to further CSA programs across the country. If you missed the film premiere during the Conference and cannot attend the event tonight, you can order a free copy.
