Last week, EverFi joined several of our partners at the New York Stock Exchange for a panel discussion on Financial Empowerment of Women as part of the the Exchange’s annual celebration of Financial Capability Month. The event focused on the role that the private, public and non-profit sectors can play in working together to promote financial empowerment.
The Exchange put a spotlight on several companies that are doing exceptionally innovative work in the financial literacy space, and we are very proud to see three of our partners – BankUnited, Regions, and TCF Bank – recognized for their exceptional effort and asked to speak at the event.
BankUnited has partnered with EverFi to provide web-based financial education to high schools across it’s Florida markets, New York City, and Long Island. On April 12, we hosted an event at the Urban Assembly School of Business for Young Women in Manhattan to honor their incredibly talented students for completing the program.
In addition to providing financial education to hundreds of high schools across the Midwest, TCF Bank provides EverFi’s adult financial education program to their employees, customers, and to families working with CommonBond, the Midwest’s largest non-profit provider of affordable housing and related educational services.
Since 2010, Regions has reached nearly 20,000 people through its sponsorship of EverFi’s high school, college, and adult online financial literacy programs. In addition to financial education, the bank also provides college students across the Southeast with access to EverFi’s courses focused on alcohol abuse and sexual assault awareness. The end goal? To create a safer, healthier campus environment for young women – and all students.
While these organizations each have robust financial literacy programming that extends beyond their partnership with EverFi, they all share a commitment to using web-based financial education to reach scale – and achieve measurable results.
As we look back on April’s Financial Capability Month, we thank ALL of our partners for their incredible efforts to promote financial empowerment in the communities that they serve. Together, we’ve reached more than 7 million students!
