There are many organizations that dish out TONS of financial education for free. All the tools, savings advice and services can help you build a solid financial foundation.
Here are several sites I recommend and would encourage you to dig into…
They encourage individuals and families to save money, reduce debt and build personal wealth. When you enroll, you receive their America Saves newsletter, free financial advice and motivation.
“We provide free financial tools, savings services, advice and resources that help Americans from every income level take the steps needed to take charge of their finances and manage money more effectively.”
Their only requirement for membership is a desire to stop incurring unsecured debt. Their primary purpose is to “stop debting one day at a time”. If you’re sick of bouncing checks, paying late fees and having creditors knocking at your door, DA is definitely worth checking out.
They have thousands of members from diverse backgrounds and circumstances and use a 12 Step approach.
“Debtors Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from compulsive debting.”
This site has loads of videos, articles, eBooks, webinars… you name it, it’s there. And it’s all right at your fingertips. Learn about family finances, loans and debt, frugal living and even how to earn more.
A site perfect for any learning style. This site has a resource center that will knock your socks off. Calculators, infographics, courses, even a place to search for coupons.
“Our goal is to provide a comprehensive online hub of personal finance education and learning resources that guide consumers in improving their personal finances.”
Teaching your children about personal finances is vital. Just like educating them in math and reading. Financial education should be right at the top of the list. This site can help with that!
Launched in 1997, the site provides tools to help parents as well as educators teach children to manage money wisely and develop good financial habits: the building blocks for a secure future. Given the current rate of savings and debt in America, this is a lesson that desperately needs to be learned.
These resources are absolutely priceless yet they offer this valuable information for free. An education on money management is right at your fingertips for all learning styles… watch a video, attend a webinar or read an article. It’s all right there, you choose. (Did I mention this is all free?)
