Power of the Purse

UConn School of Business Supports United Way’s Family Financial Security Efforts

Faculty, staff to attend Power of the Purse

In just a week, UConn School of Business faculty and staff will be attending Power of the Purse, the signature event of United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut’s Women’s Leadership Council. The event raises funds for local women and families on their road to financial security.

Through their partnership with United Way, UConn School of Business and its employees ensure low-income working families have access to free financial literacy resources needed to become financially secure. This includes learning how to make the most of hard-earned dollars, reduce debt and save for the future.

United Way’s Women’s Leadership Council is working with school leaders and nonprofit partners to offer adult financial education services at the family financial centers in Hartford. Clients benefit from financial literacy classes, one-on-one coaching, and access to matched savings accounts to help save for their education, job training, housing, transportation, or to reduce debt.

Partners in United Way’s work include the Hartford Partnership for Student Success and The Village for Families & Children, in addition to the community schools.
