Financial Planning Days

 

 

WHO WE ARE:

Financial Planning Days is a groundbreaking national initiative that unites the collective resources of the financial planning community and city governments nationwide to deliver free, no-strings-attached financial advice and education to the public through a series of Financial Planning Day events in cities around the country. 

Financial Planning Days is organized by four national, non-profit organizations – Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Financial Planning Association, Foundation for Financial Planning and The U.S. Conference of Mayors.

 

WHAT WE OFFER:

Each local Financial Planning Day event features dozens of professional financial planners volunteering their time and expertise to meet with individuals and families one-on-one to provide free personalized advice on a variety of financial topics, including – budgeting, debt management, retirement planning, investing, income taxes, insurance, estate planning, and many more.  The events also feature free classroom-style workshop presentations addressing key personal finance topics.

Best of all, it’s all free and there are no strings attached – all financial planners are participating as volunteers and they do not sell products or services, or give out business cards!
