Learning how to manage money is an important life skill. The more knowledge you have about finances, the better prepared you are for making financial decisions and eventually becoming financially independent. At EmpowHERto, we aim to provide information and resources to help young women reach their financial goals.
We’re excited to announce that we’ve received a $10,000 grant from TD Bank Group.
This grant will be used to fund our Financial Literacy program Finance Finesse, which will launch on March 2nd, 2021. The 12-week program will consist of three modules delivered virtually covering the topics of budgeting, saving, and investing. The program will also include workshops for resume writing, helping girls successfully enter the job market.
“I am very excited to watch our program come to life and impact the lives of so many young girls, helping them reach financial independence long-term. Participating in the grant writing process and winning such a generous sum from TD Bank, was a great accomplishment as a team and as an organization,” says Brenda Aviles, Programs Director at EmpowHERto.
Sawsan Nashashibi, Grant Team Manager, and her team helped secure the grant. “We’re very excited to give the girls of our community the tools they need to become financially independent and teach them all they need about financing, saving, investments, and more! We at EmpowHERto believe knowledge is power, and we’re grateful to have the opportunity to forward our knowledge to the next generation.”
EmpowHERto continues to pursue grants to fund our programs in the areas of Leadership, Health and Wellness, STEAM, Civic Engagement, and Community Building. New Leadership, Health and Wellness, and Civic Engagement programs will launch in March 2021.
