the project

The Price Project is a nonprofit organization that provides education, training, and recourses to individuals, families, and communities who seek to improve their financial literacy. Our organization’s programs are designed to be engaging, accessible, and relevant to the needs of our audience. Through our workshops, trainings, webinars, after-school and summer programming, online courses, virtual courses, and coaching services, the organization aims the equip people with the necessary knowledge, skills, and tools to make informed financial decisions.

Our Money Management workshop will provide financial education that is designed to empower individuals and families to achieve financial wellness by providing education, tools, and resources to help them manage their finances effectively. We strive to make financial literacy accessible to all, regardless of age, income, or background, and to promote equitable financial opportunities for all members of our community. Our program’s curriculum and learning tools will cover all aspects of personal finance and life skills giving individuals the foundation needed to make informed financial decisions.

the steps

The Price Project’s mission is to educate and empower underserved communities with the knowledge needed to make informed decisions about their financial futures and gain the necessary skills and tools to create financial independence. 

By receiving the project funds it would support and implement our money management project in several ways:

  1. Workshop Development and Materials:
    • Designing and developing a comprehensive money management workshop requires resources. Grant funds can cover the costs associated with creating educational materials, presentations, and workshop content.
  2. Hiring Qualified Instructors:
    • Bringing in experienced and qualified instructors or financial experts to lead the workshop enhances its effectiveness. Grant funds can be used to compensate these professionals for their time and expertise.
  3. Promotion and Outreach:
    • Effective promotion is essential to attract participants to the workshop. Grant funds can be used for marketing materials, advertising, and outreach efforts to ensure that the community is aware of the workshop and its benefits.
  4. Participant Materials and Resources:
    • Grant funds can be used to provide participants with materials such as workbooks, pamphlets, and other resources that reinforce the concepts learned during the workshop. This helps participants retain and apply the information.
  5. Incentives and Recognition:
    • To encourage participation and engagement, grant funds can be allocated for incentives, such as certificates of completion, t-shirts, small gifts, or other recognition measures that acknowledge participants' efforts in improving their financial literacy.
  6. Follow-Up and Evaluation:
    • After the workshop, ongoing support and evaluation are crucial. Grant funds can be used to implement follow-up sessions, surveys, or assessments to measure the impact of the workshop on participants' financial behaviors and understanding.

By strategically allocating the project grant funds, our organization can overcome financial barriers and ensure the success and sustainability of a money management workshop in our underserved community.

why we're doing it

Based on a previous survey, we discovered that there is a lack of financial literacy in underserved communities amongst young adults, under employed, and retirees. Our organization determined that a money management workshop can be particularly beneficial in our underserved communities for several reasons:

  1. Financial Education Gap: Underserved communities often lack access to quality financial education. A money management workshop can fill this gap by providing residents with essential knowledge about budgeting, saving, investing, and managing debt.
  2. Empowerment: Financial literacy empowers individuals to make informed decisions about their finances. By equipping people with the skills to manage money effectively, they gain a sense of control over their financial future, leading to increased confidence and self-reliance.
  3. Breaking the Cycle of Poverty: Many underserved communities face a cycle of poverty, where financial struggles are passed down through generations. A money management workshop can break this cycle by teaching practical skills that enable individuals and families to build a more stable financial foundation.
  4. Reducing Financial Stress: Financial insecurity is a significant source of stress for many individuals in underserved communities. A money management workshop can help alleviate this stress by providing tools and strategies to handle financial challenges more effectively, leading to improved mental and emotional well-being.
  5. Access to Resources: Underserved communities may have limited access to financial resources and services. A workshop can connect participants with information about available resources, government assistance programs, and community organizations that can provide financial support.
  6. Entrepreneurial Opportunities: In underserved areas, fostering entrepreneurship can be crucial for economic development. A money management workshop can include information on starting and managing a small business, creating economic opportunities and contributing to community growth.
  7. Building Savings and Assets: Many individuals in underserved communities may not have access to traditional banking or may be unfamiliar with strategies for saving and building assets. A workshop can educate participants on the importance of savings, banking services, and long-term financial planning.
  8. Customized Solutions: A money management workshop can be tailored to address specific challenges faced by the community, taking into consideration cultural, economic, and social factors. This customization increases the relevance and effectiveness of the financial education provided.

In summary, a money management workshop in an underserved community is a need because it addresses the unique challenges faced by residents, promotes financial empowerment, and contributes to breaking the cycle of poverty by providing practical skills and knowledge for financial success.
