Financial Seminars

Financial literacy seminars in Rochester, NY

Your path to financial independence starts here.

Foundation for Women’s Financial Education offers financial education seminars to strengthen a woman’s financial knowledge and understanding. For many women, it’s not about a lack of money management skills, rather it’s often having the lack of time to fully understand your role as a “money manager” regardless of your financial position. Our goal is to ensure that every woman regardless of age, profession, or education in the Greater Rochester area has the confidence to make decisions for their personal financial situation.

Take the time to invest in the best investment—yourself. Time is valuable, that’s why our seminars are only 60-90 minutes long. This provides a convenient way to learn in a welcoming and fun atmosphere with other women who are in the same position. Our seminars are led by a team of committed and passionate financial professionals who provide valuable education and unbiased information.

Our financial education seminars are partially subsidized through grants, donations, and volunteers to offer an affordable seminar rate of $25 to our participants.
