About Budget Buddies: 

Budget Buddies empowers women and teen girls from low-income backgrounds through financial education. We partner with local social service agencies and bring to their clients a comprehensive financial literacy program which combines a series of dynamic workshops with one-to-one financial coaching.

Project Overview: 

As Budget Buddies continues to move ahead into Boston, it is crucial to examine the Boston landscape and where we fit. In order to do this, we must examine the following:

  • What other nonprofits are offering financial education programs in the City of Boston?
    • How does Budget Buddies differ from those programs?
  • What are the demographics (race, ethnicity, percent living below the poverty line, etc) of the community? 
  • What issues are women in poverty facing in this community? 
  • Where do low income women get the services they need?
    • Who are the big social service agencies in the area? 
      • Would these agencies be a good fit for a Budget Buddies program?
  • What barriers exist to getting people, both clients and volunteers, to our program?
  • What volunteer networks exist? 
  • How can Budget Buddies tap into these networks?
  • What funders exist that would be interested in Budget Buddies?
  • What is the local individual philanthropic landscape like in this community?
    • Will it bring in new individual donors?
