Social change work is hard and frustrating and wonderful and terrible; it is also, at times, funny, quirky and just plain fascinating. With this blog we hope to capture all that goes into what we do at Capital Good Fund, and we invite you to join the conversation!

Event At The College Crusade

Through the Financial Coaching Corps (FCC), a program we run in partnership with Rhode Island General Treasurer Gina Raimondo, we are building some powerful partnerships.  As a case in point, we are working with The College Crusade--whose mission is to reduce high school dropout rates and increase educational and career success for low-income urban youth--to provide one-on-one Financial Coaching to the families they serve.  Last night we presented our products and services, as well as an overview of how credit works, to 80 families, of which 25 have signed up for free Coaching!

We are very excited to continue financially empowering low-income families by working with great leaders in the government, non-profit and for-profit sectors.  Special thanks to Lisa Gallant, who manages the FCC, The College Crusade, and to Treasurer Raimondo for having the vision to work with us to create and grow this program.
