Bridge Builders Foundation

Financial Literacy Program

Program Overview

If education is the great equalizer, then accumulated wealth, must be the “Great Un-Equalizer.” There are many social determinants of racial inequality (health, housing, education, employment, incarceration and criminalization, and life expectancy). Financial literacy is critically important because wealth has multi-generational benefits.

Wealth inequality perpetuates a disparate distribution of advantage, access, and opportunity. It is personal, institutional, structural and systemic. Bridge Builders Foundation (BBF), as part of our wholistic investment in youth and communities of color, has developed a culturally relevant financial literacy and wealth empowerment curriculum targeting African American and Latinx communities.

Community Education

Educational sessions covering the utility of money, financial basics, and strategies to accumulate, preserve and transfer financial wealth.
