Who We Are

The Financial Wellness Project, Inc is a non-profit corporation formed to meet the purpose of a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Our mission is simple: to elevate communities by fostering financial wellness through education. Our Authorized Educators (AEs) are professionals in their communities who are donating their time and resources to advance this mission.

What We Do

Our network of volunteer Authorized Educators (AEs) host strictly educational, free (and fun!) workshops and labs in libraries and community centers in your town. All of the workshop materials are created by us to be as engaging & informative as possible and unlike "free lunch" seminars there is never a product sales pitch. Additionally, all of our AEs are bound by our Code of Conduct as well as having met minimum experience and background standards.

Why We Do It

A recent study found that 56% of Americans lose sleep when they think about their retirement. In the same study, 42% of baby boomers said that they’re afraid of outliving their retirement savings. Only 18% of Americans say they are "Very Confident" that they have enough money for a comfortable retirement. We believe that raising awareness through education will lead to smarter financial decision making, improved confidence and ultimately happier and healthier communities.
