This unique curriculum, tailored to low-income families, provides a comprehensive approach to achieving financial sustainability, from basic banking concepts to budgeting and managing credit. It is clear and accessible for families of all backgrounds. It is also designed to work in multiple formats and a key aspect is the comprehensive facilitator’s guide which enables volunteers to present the material effectively.
But the partnership goes deeper than that. Woodforest has fully engaged Affiliates, providing local grants and having its employees become involved as volunteers on all levels—from a weeknight dinner to service on the board. This joining of financial expertise with nonprofit excellence means the families we serve have more options and resources. This is another example of a shared vision with the corporate sector resulting in better lives for families.
