Now more than ever this organization is needed to break a generational cycle and to change the way youth, view money by equipping them with five tenets for a financially responsible and philanthropic life: learn, earn, save, invest and donate.

Since its inception in 2005, more than 3,000 youth, ages 7 – 18, and have been provided with the needed financial foundation to break a generational cycle of poverty and to change the way youth view money by equipping them with the tenets for a financially responsible and philanthropic life: learn, earn, invest and donate.

Over the years the organization has honored such individuals as Rev. Al Sharpton; “The Wire” stars  Jamie Hector and  Michael K. Williams; Carl Banks (New York Giants); director Warrington Hudlin; casting director Twinkie Byrd; author/publicist Terrie Williams as well as a plethora of individuals from the world of finance.
