Our donors’ contributions have helped grow Young Investors Society into the premier financial literacy program for teens. We rely on donors and corporate support to fund our Access Initiative to provide financial literacy education to under-resourced communities that otherwise would not have access to finance programs due to demographics, income levels and other socio-economic disparities among communities, increase minorities and women in finance and STEM careers and empower youth to take an active role in their financial future.

“You see a lot of disparity and poverty when you look at black and brown communities. There is a huge wealth gap there and a lot of it has to do with the knowledge of money, the stigma around money, how people manage their money, and the decisions that are made in those communities, as well as outside those communities that impacts those communities. If we can help the youth to have a better understanding of how to best use their money and how to grow their money and build businesses within those communities, that’s one way you can better develop those communities and the next generation to build something greater than what they have now.”
