Testimonials


As a parent, I think we get too caught up in trying to find the right athletic or arts based activities for our children. While these activities are undoubtedly important for our children’s development, I can’t think of a more important gift we can give them than the lifelong lesson of managing their finances. With 3 young children, I struggle with how to communicate this subject to them. Nothing seems to work. I am starting to realize that I just don’t know how to deliver the message in a format that will keep them engaged or that they will adequately learn from. That’s why I was so excited when I learned about Knowledge Makes Cents. I am so eager to enroll my kids into their innovative programs. I also realize that I too can definitely benefit from the adult programs being offered at Knowledge Makes Cents. I am really looking forward to having intelligent discussions with my children about money and saving and most importantly, not worrying about having to potentially support them financially in my retirement years!

- Jim, a parent

I am very enthusiastic about enrolling my children in the Knowledge Makes Cents programs. This is the information I wish I’d had when I was young, information my kids need to succeed in life. Knowledge Makes Cents is filling the gap that is left by our education system.

- Theresa, a parent

Congratulations on the start of an innovated well-needed venture. I am encouraged by your passion to have Knowledge Makes Cents provide our children with the tools they need to be financially free. In my youth I didn’t have much knowledge about money. My parents did not teach the use of money. When I turned 18 I received my first credit card with no instructions. I thought it was free money. Of course it was not and I learned the hard way about interest rates and paying off credit cards. I was in trouble. I had to figure it out on my own. BUT if I had been given the knowledge/advice about money matters I would have been able to make better educated financial decisions. If I knew then, what you will be teaching our kids now – it would have been so helpful. I’m so glad you will be helping our children learn about money. I am so proud of this journey you are on to help our youth to provide them with caution rather than regret.

- Maxine, a parent

How many of us have wondered how our lives would be different if we had learned to make sound financial decisions at an earlier age? Knowledge Makes Cents provides that exciting opportunity for our children. As a result of Knowledge Makes Cents the next generation will be better equipped to make good financial decisions.

- Clark
