We are an organization run by students passionate about improving financial literacy. We exist to help others avoid financial insecurity. We believe that by educating the W&M community about money and finance, we can empower others to make better decisions, achieve their goals, and live more enjoyable lives.
Money and finance are fields that many consider uncomfortable or mysterious. Financial ignorance — often through no fault of one’s own — costs Americans thousands annually. A poll from the National Financial Educators Council found that financial illiteracy cost each American adult an average of $1,389 in 2021. Below, we have summarized important personal finance issues and compiled further resources on them to help you with your financial education.
