Ending Financial Illiteracy

Updated: Oct 5

Only 3% of people in this country actually have a written financial plan per SOFA, The Society for Financial Awareness. Most people are “winging” it and hoping they will have enough assets to live comfortably in retirement. With the current drastic increase in inflation, many people we talk to are wondering if they will have enough money to live on in retirement.


SOFA is a nonprofit 501(3)c group that is not permitted to sell anything. It’s a great resource that has been around since 1993, and many people are not even aware they exist.


The need for financial literacy education is more critical than ever, and if you are a business owner with an HR department, reach out to us to learn how you can have financial literacy workshops presented to your associates at no cost.


If you feel like we do, it is easy to get involved and become a member of SOFA. This is our giveback; we have joined SOFA to provide financial literacy education across the nation for families, communities and employers at no cost to you or your organization!
