Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Founded in 2005, the WorldofMoney.org is a New York City based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to empower youth with a sound financial foundation.
WorldofMoney.org has empowered over 3,000 youth, ages 7 - 18, and their families have been provided with the needed financial education 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.
The WorldofMoney.org provides youth with the curriculum to survive economic cycles by examining their own money mindsets. In addition, students learn the history of money, budgeting, saving, compound interest, stock market, mutual funds, commodities, credit, insurance, advertising, trusts, wills, consumer finance, business communication, entrepreneurship, real estate ownership, Mandarin Chinese and philanthropy. The curriculum encourages our students to set financial legacies and make sound decisions to balance consumer and investor behaviors. The curriculum also includes Excel, community service and year round alumni activities, including a Parent "Money Matters' Forum.
