Since 2009, the Community Foundation for Financial Literacy has been actively involved in the community teaching personal financial concepts to youth, young adults and their parents.
Millions of households in the US lack the most basic of financial products, such as bank accounts or renters insurance. Millions more are on the margins of financial services provision. Of those who are excluded from mainstream credit (banks, credit unions or unsecured credit cards), it is the most vulnerable who must turn to the more expensive credit providers like check cashing services, title pawn, and payday lenders. We believe that teaching youth, young adults and their parents will help create stronger communities.
Our organization has taken on the challenge to help these individuals and families. The organization is supported by its board members and by thoughtful individuals that understand that there is a critical need for our people to learn and master these key concepts in order to get on a road to financial self-sufficiency.
As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, we rely on the generosity of corporations and individuals to fund our programs and initiatives.
