WorldofMoney.org

December 2005 - Today

WorldofMoney.org was founded in 2005 and is a New York City based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to empower youth with a sound financial education. Nearly 4,000 youth between ages 7 – 18, and their families have received World of Money’s 40 to 120 classroom hours of financial and entrepreneurship. This approach has steadily broken a generational cycle and changed the way youth and their parents understand their money. Our immersive curriculum equips children with five tenets for a financially responsible and philanthropic life: learn, earn, save, invest and donate. Our financial presenters are stellar Wall Street professionals, business and legal leaders. Via 24 coalition partners, the World of Money provides youth with our youth financial education mobile app. Our app is being utilized by these national, local, regional and global organizations in Senegal, Ghana, South Africa, China, India and Rwanda.
