Financial Literacy

APPEAL’s Financial Literacy component includes a workshop series, a video warehouse, a reading list, and a resource bank to connect people to financial services and information that they may need or want. You can explore each of these below. The term “financial literacy” refers to teaching people to become proficient in the fundamentals of personal financial management, including credit, budgeting, banking, saving, home ownership, investing, and retirement planning, and also the principles of community financial and economic self-sufficiency, empowerment and prosperity, particularly as these principles relate to the plight of people of African descent, locally, nationally and globally.

APPEAL offers Financial Literacy workshops that cover a comprehensive set of topics to provide insightful and transformative information. These workshops provide valuable information and tools regarding personal and family financial management and empowerment, and also community economic development and empowerment, with a particular focus on economic advancement for people of African descent.
