Empower U – Matched Savings Program for Women!


EMPOWER U combines financial literacy programs with a 1:2 matched savings component. You learn about money and save money. Every dollar saved by group participants generates two dollars in matched contributions.

Savings are used for designated asset purchases related to improving the quality of life, education or job training to facilitate long term financial asset development.</

Empower U is open to women of diverse backgrounds who are experiencing low income and poverty.

Through Empower U, participants will have the opportunity to improve their financial literacy which includes the ability to make informed judgments and effective decisions about the wise use and management of money.
