FinMango is a global non-profit that offers in-class and after-school products for youth of various academic levels around the world. In addition, we promote financial literacy campaigns. FinMango’s mission is to create an energetic, optimistic, and empowered planet by providing youth access to financial education. FinMango offers two year-round, community-based programs: the Financial Enlightenment Program and the Bob Gillingham Investment Program.
Internationally, we support financial education and awareness programs in 8 countries - in Africa, Asia, Central and North America. With the help of local partners, we have reached over 500 people. In 2017, FinMango was invited by the 2017 Financial Innovation Award Winner, Prakash Koirala, to have dinner at Harvard University. In 2018, FinMango was invited to the CFSI/JPMorgan Chase Financial Solutions Lab in San Francisco, California. The invite-only event allowed us to connect with FinTech leaders and has acted as a catalyst for the FinMango organization, giving us a new drive and direction for the future as we continue to grow globally.
Founded in 2016, FinMango has already served approximately 2,559 students in the Akron/Canton and Cleveland metro areas. The organization currently has 19 volunteers and 5 board members. With the assistance of the volunteers, FinMango has spent approximately 376 hours with in-class and after-school instruction. Internationally, we have reached 500 people with the help of field partners. In 2018, FinMango plans to begin a process of regional scaling with a long-term goal of an international scaling initiative with the Money Cycle Awareness Program.
