We have partnered with STOCKPILE for the Dollar-A-Day Challenge!


Creating a brokerage account for the Dollar-A-Day Challenge has never been easier!

With Stockpile, you can buy fractional shares of stock in publicly-traded companies. Rather than buying an entire share of stock, you can get just the amount you want in your favorite company.

You can pick from more than a thousand stocks including Amazon, Tesla, Apple, Nike and Disney. Stockpile also offers ETFs for Gold, NASDAQ, S&P500 and more.

YIS Members and their parents can click the button below and get $5.00 of free stock to get started.

Under 18? No problem, sign up with an adult.  After the account is set up, students can start investing in their personal brokerage account. Students get their own login and can buy or sell stock for just 99 cents a trade with an adult’s permission. There are no monthly fees and you can learn about the stock market with Stockpile’s 20 mini-lessons.
Track your stock on the Stockpile iOS or Android App.

YIS donors want to help you build wealth for retirement by providing Dollar-a-Day matching grants.

A limited number of YIS Dollar-a-Day participants may be eligible to receive a grant that matches your contributions dollar for dollar on a quarterly basis up to the number of days in the quarter (e.g., 91 days in a quarter = max match of $91).
