We are pleased to announce that the $3500 award will be used to help CFE launch Financial Peace for Employees as a separate project within our mission. Our goal in 2017 is to partner with six area businesses to sponsor FPU classes for their employees. Our goal is for each class to have at least 12 to 15 employee participants. Classes will be facilitated by a Ramsey Solutions Certified Master Financial Coach.
We are so grateful to the Sioux Center Community Foundation for investing in this program! The ability to reach a greater number of employed persons with this education opportunity will have a cascading impact on the entire community. Among the core tenets of FPU are the need to develop contentment with what one has, pay bills in a timely manner, save and invest for the future, create legacies for future generations (both monetarily and by training children in good financial habits) and the importance of giving back to the community and to others in need. Each of these skills will positively impact the Sioux Center area.
We also wish to thank TransOva Genetics for being the first area business to offer this benefit to their employees under the Financial Peace for Employees project. If you would like to participate in this great program at work, please have your manager or Human Resources department contact CFE soon!
