Women's Wealth Equity Building Initiative

New cohort begins in June!

Financial education and savings lead to generational wealth. Start your journey toward economic stability and prosperity at Phyllis Wheatley. 

What is the Women’s Wealth and Equity Building Initiative?


Phyllis Wheatley Community Center seeks to close the racial wealth gaps for the African American community. This September, we are launching the Women’s Wealth and Equity Building Initiative to specifically respond to single, mother-led families' needs for opportunities to build wealth with expert, culturally appropriate financial education and advice.  


Join the PWCC Women's Wealth and Equity Building Initiative for free financial literacy and wealth building education classes. The weekend-long course is followed by monthly support meetings, one-on-one coaching to develop a personalized plan to stabilize your finances and start to save for the future along with monthly savings support meetings provides a 2:1 savings match (up to $2,000 from PWCC per $1,000 saved per family – over one year)! This program is aimed at helping single, female heads of households with low or moderate income levels. 

Program benefits include:

  • An intensive weekend of training and financial literacy courses from BuildWealth MN, covering credit, budgeting, homeownership, savings, and 3 financial literacy sessions

  • Participants each receive a laptop computer, thanks to our partnership with PCs for People

  • Savings matching with up to $1,000 saved by participate and a match of $2,000 (2:1 Match) towards a Bremer Bank savings account for eligible families.
