Financial Coaching Corps - Giving back. Moving forward.

Financial Coaching PlaceholderThe Rhode Island Financial Coaching Corps (FCC) is a unique, community-based partnership between the Office of the Rhode Island General Treasurer and the Capital Good Fund, a Providence-based non-profit microfinance organization that provides innovative microloans and personal financial coaching. 

The mission of the Corps is to empower Rhode Islanders to take charge of their finances.

The goal is to match volunteers with financial skills and know-how with Rhode Islanders looking to learn how to make their money work for them.

Corps members are trained volunteers – active and retired financial planners, accountants and bankers – who donate their time by working one-on-one with Rhode Islanders to improve their credit, build a budget and manage debt.

The Financial Coaching Corps is open to all Rhode Islanders regardless of income or financial goals. The benefits of working with a Corps volunteer are  financial stability, improved credit and a toolkit for success.

1) Community coaching: Corps members are trained volunteers – active and retired financial planners, accountants and bankers – who donate their time by working one-on-one with Rhode Islanders to improve their credit, build a budget and manage debt.

2) Employer-based coaching:  Rhode Island employers are encouraged to take advantage of bringing Corps volunteers into their workplaces, through an employee benefit model around financial coaching. Research shows that if employees are financially secure, their productivity in the workplace increases.
