Increasing Financial Skills
Knowledge is power.
Financial capability is critical to economic stability, and skill-building can happen any where. Financial education should be informed by the latest financial information, techniques, and research in pedagogy, andragogy, and behavioral economics.
Midas assisted in forming MassSaves, formerly The Massachusetts Financial Education Collaborative (MFEC). MassSaves' innovative Financial Confidence & Coaching Program helps Mass. residents develop new self-sustaining skills and tools to better manage their finances, create savings and assets, and access vetted resources and information. This helps them make better decisions, understand their options, realize their financial goals, and increase their long-term finances and assets.
MassSaves is a broad volunteer-based network working to ensure that all residents of Massachusetts have access to high-quality financial education programs, information and materials. Our vision is to make Massachusetts a national model for financial confidence and empowerment. Our coalition members are passionate about areas of wealth or asset development, including financial education, personal finance, safe and affordable financial products, or economic security and justice issues.
