BOSTON – Women’s Money Matters, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering women with essential financial skills, is thrilled to announce the receipt of a significant grant from Womenade Boston. This generous support will bolster the organization’s Life Launch program, enabling more young women to establish a strong financial foundation and gain the confidence necessary for future success.
Financial education among young women is of utmost importance, yet the statistics surrounding this issue are alarming. According to the Office of Economic Empowerment, less than 20 high schools in Massachusetts currently mandate a full semester of financial literacy education. Furthermore, a mere 12% of girls feel very confident in making financial decisions, despite a striking 90% expressing a strong desire to learn how to better manage their money, according to research conducted by Girl Scouts.
Recognizing the urgent need to bridge this educational gap, Women’s Money Matters has been steadfast in its commitment to empowering young women through its comprehensive financial wellness programs. The Life Launch program, in particular, focuses on equipping participants with vital financial skills and building their confidence to make informed financial decisions.
Thanks to the generous grant from Womenade Boston, Women’s Money Matters can expand the reach and impact of the Life Launch program. The grant will facilitate the development of tailored curriculum materials, recruiting and training volunteer coaches, and workshops designed to empower young women with practical financial knowledge. This financial education as well as the ongoing support will serve as a solid foundation for young women, equipping participants with the tools needed to navigate financial challenges and achieve long-term financial security.
“We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Womenade Boston for their invaluable support of our Life Launch program,” said Danielle Piskadlo, Executive Director at Women’s Money Matters. “This grant will make a tremendous difference in the lives of the young women we serve, enabling them to establish a strong financial foundation and gain the confidence necessary to thrive in their personal financial and professional lives.”
Through ongoing collaboration with partners like Womenade Boston, the organization continues to provide life-changing resources and guidance that inspire financial independence, resilience, and success among young women.
