California Foundation Fund (CAFF) online directory helps bankers send clients to school.
Too often bank tellers are asked by clients to help them find where their money went. Bankers spend hours researching and explaining bank statements. Bank clients are embarrassed and reminded how little time they have spent managing their affairs.
There are few times that banks will admit they made a mistake. If they do, trying to avoid fees will cost customers time or worse, derogatory credit. Much of this can be avoided if bank consumers had a resource to learn more about financial services.
Today many consumers are learning how to avoid unnecessary fees and improve their wealth through financial literacy classes. These classes are provided for free at various community centers around town. Besides avoiding fees, there are many benefits to financial literacy workshops.
Benefits of attending a personal financial workshop:
learn how to plan and manage expenses
increase your take home income
reduce or eliminate bank fees
eliminate check cashing fees
understand the banks work for you
understand how to save and make money grow
get tips on tax savings and tax credits
learn how to get the right loan at a minimal cost
learn how to get rid of debt
plan how to retire sooner
learn how to invest wisely
learn how insurance can make you money
Bankers need a source to refer clients that need and want an education on money management. As of today, CAFF has posted a monitored open directory for NGO's, banks, colleges, and educational agencies to list their financial literacy workshops. This public directory is available for anyone to search for financial education courses in their community. The site can be views at: http://cafoundationfund.org/resources/directory

The California Foundation Fund ensures that the sites listed are not unscrupulous or attempting to sell products or services to attendees. All of the sites listed are visited by CAFF staff and monitored for consistency. In many cases CAFF helps these institutions with curriculum and educational support.
