My Money Workshop, a nonprofit that educates teens and adults to manage their finances and to make a lifetime of informed decisions, is proud to announce that it has received a $5,000 Premiere Turning Point Sponsorship from Mid-Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union (MHV).
MHV’s sponsorship dollars will directly support their customized Foundation for Financial Success program for the parents at the Peekskill Parent Resource Center, a long-time My Money Workshop community partner. For nearly 12 years, My Money Workshop has empowered teens and adults to advocate for themselves as they begin or return to their financial journey. My Money Workshop partners with public/private high schools, colleges, universities, specialty schools, and community-based organizations to deliver highly interactive financial literacy programs to students and community members. Their partners are committed to empowering individuals and communities toward self-sufficiency.
“We are thrilled to welcome Mid-Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union as a Premiere Turning Point Sponsor,” says Gineyda Diaz, My Money Workshop’s Executive Director. “Our corporate partners enable My Money Workshop to deliver customized financial literacy programs free of charge at partnering schools and organizations. MHV’s support will have an exponential impact in our community, and I am pleased to begin this new partnership.”
MHV is recognized as a leading financial literacy advocate. They’ve built an entire portfolio of financial education carefully designed to address the most basic banking skills to more complex financial topics. MHV will partner with My Money Workshop staff and instructors to create a new Financial education topic, The Difference Between Banks and Credit Unions, that will be delivered during future My Money Workshop programs.
Michael Mattone, VP, Community Impact at MHV says: “Guiding people on their financial journeys is a core mission at MHV. The partnership with My Money Workshop means that critical financial education resources continue to remain accessible to the residents of Peekskill.”
