A collaboration dedicated to advancing financial peace of mind for all
Radnor, Pa. –Oct. 5, 2021 – To kick off Financial Planning Month, which is celebrated in October each year, eMoney Advisor(eMoney), a leading provider of technology solutions and services that help people talk about money, today announced its new partnership with the Foundation for Financial Planning (FFP), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to expanding access to pro bono financial planning for people in crisis or need.
Through the partnership, eMoney joins FFP’s Corporate 100 Club (C100), committing to a multi-year sponsorship and donation of $100,000 over the next four years. Additionally, eMoney executives serve on FFP’s Corporate Advisory Council (CAC) and Pro Bono Technology Committee to strategize how to use technology for more efficient and effective pro bono engagements for both clients who are underrepresented and advisors who are looking to help.
“We are deeply committed to giving back and advancing our vision of financial peace of mind for all. Together with FFP, we can leverage technology and industry expertise to deliver financial advice for communities most in need,” said Celeste Revelli, director of financial planning at eMoney, and a member of the FFP’s CAC and Pro Bono Technology Committee.
Over the course of their four-year partnership, eMoney will work with FFP on several initiatives, including the Pro Bono Challenge at the 2021 eMoney Summit and “The Gift of Advice” panel discussion in November.
Pro Bono Challenge
FFP is committed to filling its pipeline with quality volunteer opportunities. To encourage participation, eMoney is challenging advisors who attend the 2021 eMoney Summit — being hosted virtually Oct. 25 to 27 — to become pro bono planners. The first 100 advisors to sign up for the Pro Bono Challenge will receive access to eMoney’s financial planning and wellness mobile application, Incentive.
Incentive provides tools for saving, budgeting and debt management — the top concerns of those seeking pro bono advice — making it a great solution to facilitate pro bono relationships. Additionally, eMoney will also offer pro bono financial planning training for continuing education credit at the Summit.
The Gift of Advice
eMoney will host a panel of financial experts for “The Gift of Advice: A Panel Discussion” on Thursday, Nov. 4, from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. ET. This all-star panel — hosted by Mac Gardner, CFP®, author, founder of FinLit Tech and eMoney consultant — will share reflections from 2021 and strategies for sharing financial tips with clients of all ages, backgrounds and financial situations. In the spirit of giving, eMoney will donate $5 per attendee to the FFP to help share the gift of advice with those in need.
FFP is thrilled to be partnering with eMoney, an industry leader in financial technology,” said Jon Dauphiné, FFP CEO. “Their knowledge and expertise continue to be invaluable as we explore how technology can enhance pro bono engagements with lower-income clients, making our work more effective and impactful than ever before.”
