Project Details

What We Need
  • An Excel spreadsheet custom-built specifically for the Organization's finances
  • Training on how to use the spreadsheet to understand the current financial situation and predict future states (e.g., plan for budget increases or decreases, hiring, and other key drivers)
Additional Details

SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT FROM PROJECT TEMPLATE: I am looking for a writer and facilitator for a financial literacy workshop for college students. We would like to include topics such as building credit, getting approved for a loan, finding scholarships, and handling debt after graduation. This workshop will be offered to current college students, most of whom go to school in California.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a general financial literacy slide deck which could help you to get started.
    We also have staff that can facilitate the training if you are able to help us out with specific financial literacy information for college students!
How This Will Help
This project will save us $14,474 , allowing us to focus on speaking with our students and alumni directly to determine their needs and interests and searching for more opportunities and resources for them.

Mission Bit offers free coding classes to high school students. We now connect with our alumni, most of which are current college students, to provide ongoing support and resources. We aim to serve the whole student/person.

This project will help our alumni to become better at managing their finances in and after college!
