Who We Serve

We serve women and girls over the age of 10 who are living on low incomes, many in transitional housing. Our programs are for cis and trans women, as well as non-binary people who are comfortable in a space that centers on the experiences of women and girls.

Our History

Founding Mothers, Anita Saville and Kathy Brough, had worked together on multiple political campaigns and shared a passion for empowering women. Anita and Kathy first discussed a financial education program for women living on low-incomes in 2009. As the Great Recession gathered steam, it became clear that few people had the skills to manage their money effectively.

After a year of research, the Founding Mothers realized that case managers don’t have time to help their clients learn key financial skills. They determined that a sustained program that combined workshops and individualized mentoring was needed. “What if we trained volunteers for this”, one case manager said. And the idea for our program was born.

In June 2022 Budget Buddies officially rebranded to Women’s Money Matters.

Our Commitment to DEI

At Women’s Money Matters, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are at the core of our mission and model. We serve women and girls living on low-incomes, who are disproportionately members of historically marginalized communities. We are committed to operating a diverse and equitable organization, in order to better serve our clients by more closely understanding their lived experiences, to improve outcomes through diversity of perspectives and experiences, and to create a comfortable and open environment for all.
