RADNOR, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Apr 29, 2019–eMoney Advisor (eMoney), a leading provider of technology solutions and services that help people talk about money, participated in Financial Literacy Month by volunteering with local organizations to help Philadelphia families navigate personal finance. Throughout the month of April, eMoney partnered with the City of Philadelphia Controller’s Office to host financial literacy workshops at local coffee shops. The events offered one-on-one help from eMoney financial advisors to address common questions about filing taxes, developing assets and planning for retirement.
In addition, eMoney employees joined forces with the Campaign for Working Families, a nonprofit organization that provides tax assistance to lower-income families, for the second consecutive year. eMoney employees collectively volunteered more than 240 hours at free tax filing sites in the greater Philadelphia area to help alleviate financial anxiety and bolster economic empowerment.
“It’s no coincidence that Financial Literacy Month falls within tax season, and we recognize this time of year can be particularly stressful as families examine their finances,” said Matt Schulte, CFP, head of financial planning at eMoney. “We wanted to bolster the community’s access to free, in-person help and empower residents to take control of their finances.”
Both volunteer initiatives were an extension of eMoney’s commitment to giving back to the communities where employees live and work. In 2018, eMoney donated $100,000 to organizations dedicated to causes that are important to employees, including:
- Foundation for Financial Planning Pro Bono Program (Financial Education)
- Junior Achievement (Financial Education)
- Girls Who Code (Tech Education)
- Global Giving (Disaster Recovery)
- Hope for Warriors (Military and Veterans)
- Friends Animal…
