We, ShareBuilder 401k, are now a corporate sponsor of the nonprofit, Financial Beginnings. We are working with them to empower more Americans with financial skills and knowledge to build a better future.
ShareBuilder 401k’s mission is to Lead Americans to Save. Financial Beginnings is a nationally expanding nonprofit focused on teaching youth and adults in low-income and impoverished communities how to play an active role in their financial well-being, thereby enabling greater life opportunities like home ownership, higher education, and secure retirement. Our missions align in many ways, and I’m thrilled to extend our resources, skills and knowledge to give more people a leg up and help them build stronger foundations for the future.
There is a big need for financial education to better our society. Our nation’s school curriculums don’t tend to focus on basic financial budgeting and money management. There is a large economic gap between Black Americans and Caucasian and other ethnic groups in America. Many Americans are suffocating under the load of loans and credit cards.
Financial education can have a powerful impact on helping more Americans take control of their financial lives, better take care of their loved ones, pursue their dreams, and have a more powerful voice in our country.
As a partner sponsor for the Washington affiliate, ShareBuilder 401k will support development and execution of Financial Beginnings’ educational programs delivered through local and regional classrooms, community groups, events and more. We can all take part as volunteers and educators to improve our communities and nation, and this is one way we are excited to give back.
