SRQ DAILY MONDAY BUSINESS EDITION MONDAY OCT 29, 2018

With the support of a grant of $10,000 last year from SunTrust Foundation, Goodwill Manasota has launched an app called “Show Me the Good Money,” which will help users develop the skills needed to successfully manage personal finances and transition from poverty to economic independence. The app, which is free, is available at the Google Play store. Research has demonstrated the positive impact of financial literacy training on low- and moderate-income workers and young adults, finding that the majority of program participants changed the way they budgeted and paid bills. With the “Good Money” app, Goodwill has focused on learning areas including “Checkbook 101,” wealth accumulation, and managing savings. It will help to keep users on top of their money and better understand the consequences of their financial decisions.
