A Meaningful Life for Your Money
September 13th, 2020 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Pacific Time (4-6:30pm Eastern)
Join us this Grandparent’s Day, in collaboration with Elders Action Network, for an inspiring webinar recognizing the impact our financial resources can have on the world around us and in building a better world for younger generations.
Featuring an exciting group of renowned speakers, together we will explore using the power of money to express your values, fuel the causes you care about, and to teach the next generation to do the same.
At a time when many small businesses are struggling and racial justice and equity are front of mind, many people – with a variety of financial resources – want to know how they can help support the things they care about. Money is one way – and it is impactful.
Together, we’ll spotlight a few strategies to create a better world with money – beginning with an exploration of your relationship with your resources, we will then discuss:
- Aligning spending with values.
- Consciously investing in businesses you believe in.
- Donating to public charities.
We’ll also share tips and ideas for involving younger family members in your giving traditions.
All of these strategies are relevant regardless of your resources.
COST: Sliding Scale ($25-$100)
