Through strategic partnerships and culturally-responsive workshops and events, our approach to financial education is tailored to address the unique challenges and social pressures today's college students face.
I struggled in college because I struggled with money. It's hard to focus on the books when you can barely eat or sleep between classes and multiple jobs.
Supporting Know Money means another young person doesn't have to face that mounting daily anxiety. They can move smarter, enjoy their college experience, and truly prepare for a fruitful life after graduation.
