Financial success should be for all


Why Financial Literacy?

Every aspect of our adult lives: from paying bills, applying and managing credit, buying cars and homes, and investing for the future, all depend on a basic financial literacy


And yet, research shows that only about half of Americans understand concepts like  debt and the importance for saving for retirement.   


California is one of 5 states with no personal finance education standards for any grade level

The Need is Great

America's massive and expanding racial & gender financial literacy gap contributes to

growing economic inequalities.


 Low financial literacy is connected to negative credit behaviors, higher interest and delinquency rates and home foreclosure.

Financial Literacy Empowers

According to the P-Fin Index, the connection is clear: financial literacy leads to financial wellness


People with greater financial literacy are:


  • Better prepared to achieve short & long-term financial goals
  • Better able to handle unexpected expenses
  • Are less likely to be bound by debt and tend to make payments on time 
  • More likely to plan for & stay on track towards retirement goals

Financial Literacy Curriculum

There is much to know about the financial part of our lives. We often must learn as we go, making painful mistakes along the way. 


Beyond the specifics of budgeting or how credit works, a large part of financial wellness is about self-control, discipline and trade-offs; about delayed gratification and the ability to think long-term. 


Topics include:


Wants vs. Needs


Financial Goal-Setting & Planning


Delayed Gratification & Self-Control


Income & Taxes


Budgeting & Expenses


Savings


Unexpected Life Events


Credit & Debt


Insurance & Risk


Being a Critical Consumer 


Retirement


The Magic of Compounding
