This year WIFS Portland is proud to support Financial Beginnings. Financial Beginnings is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that teaches individuals how to play an active role in their financial well-being. Developing this knowledge increases available life opportunities such as home ownership, higher education, and secure retirement.
Financial Beginnings affiliates invest in their communities’ financial well-being and quality of life. Our programs serve all groups, but focus on populations most in need.
Each year, our Chapter supports a worthy local non profit organization. Our members volunteer, help raise funds, create awareness, and provide support. For 2019 our chosen Charity is Kairos. KairosPDX is a non-profit organization focused on delivering excellent education to underserved children in our community. Through innovative pedagogy, community collaboration and family partnership Kairos works to close Portland’s achievement gap in measurable, sustainable ways.
