The Launch of Financial Titans – Financial Literacy Program

We’re THRILLED to announce….

Illuminated Life School is launching a mental health & well-being and deep financial literacy after-school program for at-risk high school students in Puerto Rico called Financial Titans! 💰💵

Here’s how it works:

  1. We feed students a filling whole-food meal each night of the program (many of our students experience food insecurity, and these are the most nutritious filling meals they get each week).
  2. We provide students with mental & emotional well-being support, training, and tools.
  3. We take students through a hands-on, deep financial literacy program (you can see an outline of our program here). 

When students are supported physically, mentally, and emotionally and given the guidance and resources to break the cycle of poverty and be financially free… it changes the trajectory of their lives, which, of course, has a PROFOUND ripple effect in our world

Our goal is to put 100 students through this life-changing 6-month program in 2024.

If you don’t yet know the story behind Financial Titans, you can watch it now here.

We need your donations! 

In addition to being a 501c3 non-profit, we have 1101.01(a) Status, so if you have an Act 22/60 decree, your Act 22/60 mandatory donation qualifies… we’re also a CECFL charity – the additional designation of eradicating childhood poverty. This means that no matter what type of Act 22/60 decree you have, we can accept your full donation (but you’re not obligated to give your full donation to any one charity; you can split it up if you desire).

We take donations in any amount, and everything helps. 

You can donate in 3 minutes online, HERE.

Together let’s make our world a better place,

Heidi DeCoux
