The Mission Of Savvy Ladies … Empowering Women Through Financial Education
Founded in 2003, Savvy Ladies Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that provides free financial literacy education to women. The goal of Savvy Ladies is to ensure that women have a trusted and reliable resource to get educated about their financial lives, and encourage women to build and preserve economic security. The intended outcome is to decrease the number of women who fall prey to financial abuse and exploitation, and increase the number of women who understand the importance of educating themselves. The Savvy Ladies organization is unique in that it is completely independent of any financial institution or company.
The organization’s programs have grown dramatically in response to demand and continued need and by leveraging the effort and expertise of highly qualified pro bono volunteers. Over the past 17 years, Savvy Ladies has helped over 20,000 women in the New York area and nationwide through virtual and in-person programs. These include the Savvy Ladies Helpline, offering women in crisis free, one-on-one, personalized financial counseling provided by Certified Financial Expert volunteers, as well as an active program of webinars, seminars, and workshops.
Through its unique programming, Savvy Ladies instills the importance of financial knowledge and provides women with the resources to make informed financial decisions for themselves and their families.
