A Funder-to-Funder Conversation on Maximizing the Golden Triangle:

Savings, the EITC, and Financial Coaching 

Join the EITC Funders Network and the Asset Funders Network on Thursday, September 29th at the 2016 Assets Learning Conference (ALC) in Washington, DC for a unique funders-only opportunity to explore the intentional linkages between savings, the EITC, and financial coaching. 

Household savings, especially flexible assets, can play a key role in creating economic stability, opportunity, and even breaking intergenerational cycles of poverty. The EITC, the nation’s largest anti-poverty program and a proven success at helping both adults and children across the lifespan, creates a unique savings opportunity. Further, financial coaching, an empowering model that helps clients develop their own solutions to work toward financial capability, has the potential to maximize the impacts of these savings. 

This invitation-only briefing will contextualize the linkages within a two-generation poverty reduction framework, offer best practices and lessons learned from the field, and foster the opportunity for peer-to-peer learning and collaboration.
