Although not specifically focused on helping individuals and families with disabilities, Savvy Ladies‘ mission to empower women to achieve financial independence aligns with my personal mission of leveling the field to allow people of all abilities the same opportunities to live lives worth living.
Who They Are
Savvy Ladies is a nonprofit dedicated to empowering women through financial education.
What They Do
Savvy Ladies offers several programs and events to get their financial planning resources to as large of an audience as possible, while providing a safe and secure medium for women to network and learn about financially-related topics.
Their Financial Helpline provide personal consultations with a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) at no cost – these financial planners are donating their time and have been vetted by Savvy Ladies. It’s important to note by those considering the use of this service (or by planners interested in volunteering) – there is no promotion of products and services during these calls!
Every Wednesday Savvy Ladies hosts a webinar – it’s their “Wedne$day Wi$dom Webinar Series”. There are links to all past webinars, where they have been categorized and are searchable.
Savvy Ladies also puts on events and recognizes people for the work they’ve done to help women or themselves.
What Else Should I Know
Savvy Ladies is a non-profit, they are able to support women through donations of money and time (from certified financial planners). It’s an unfortunate truth that many women in relationships are kept in the dark about finances, I’ve seen it with past clients who have gone through a divorce and are trying to rebuild. Share this information with everyone – friends, daughters, etc; money is still a taboo topic and we cannot/should not assume anyone, no matter how successful, is completely comfortable with their finances.
