Improving Financial Literacy

SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY JUN 13, 2015

Thanks to a generous $10,000 grant from SunTrust Bank, Goodwill Manasota has brought its internally established financial literacy program to the community at large.  On Wednesday June 10, Goodwill’s financial literacy educator Nancy Crawford presented the “Budgeting and Financial Wellness Workshop” at the Bradenton Housing Authority. Crawford covered topics such as budgeting skills, savings needs, and the use of credit. The financial literacy program is a part of Goodwill’s “Good Neighbor” Program, which is designed to meet the specific needs of the community. “Employment is just the first step in the long road to self-sufficiency. If someone has never learned how to budget or been taught financial literacy, the chances for self-sufficiency are greatly reduced,” said Bob Rosinsky, president & CEO of Goodwill Manasota.
