Financial Beginnings is committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
We are dedicated to serving Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities by offering financial knowledge through accessible educational programming.

This work is but part of a larger effort needed to close the existing racial wealth gap and improve quality of life for populations most in need. There is still much to be done--individually, collectively, and collaboratively--to address ongoing racial inequities and disparities.

As an organization, we pledge to utilize this statement in all aspects of our work, and will continue to report on what we're doing; Current updates on progress

Financial Beginnings Equity Statement
We recognize a greater need to serve minoritized and marginalized populations stems from a long-rooted history of systemic oppression, which has excluded these populations from having equitable access to financial knowledge and sound resources.
