Lifting each out of poverty until there is one less
Piggy Bank & Paint Project
As part of our effort to begin closing the wealth gap, and primarily the racial wealth
gap between economically challenged households of color and their upper middle class
and wealth counterparts, we are working with youth ages 5-
The Piggy Bank & Paint project partners with elementary and middle schools in underserved communities to bring workshops into schools for students, with a fun way for them to begin to learn about money and start creating life long habits of savings. This project also partners with professional artists who work with the students to help them bring out their creative sides and paint their individual piggy banks to showcase their personalities.
We are proud to partner with Citizens Bank on the Piggy Bank & Paint project to offer special youth savings accounts that parents can open for their children so that start learning how money can make money through earned interest.
In 2017, the goal of the Piggy Bank & Paint project is to work with 100 youth in our workshops and to help put them on the path to a lifetime of financial responsibility and stability.
For 2017, the Piggy Bank & Paint project will be partnering with the following schools, with 50% of the available slots in each workshop set aside for children from each school, and the remaining seats open to the general public:
Roosevelt Elementary/Middle School at 430 E. Washington Lane on April 29, 2017
Blaine Elementary/Middle School at 3001 W. Berks St. Date TBA
