Orange on Green: From One WIFE to Another

Orange on Green: From One WIFE to Another
Started by two women, one unique Web site can help you learn more about your finances. Read on as our financial columnists share a tip of the trade.


You do it all. You go off to work and come home to laundry to wash and dinner to cook, and on top of it all, you have to keep your budget in check. Any one of those responsibilities can seem overwhelming, so to lighten the load, you might want to check out WIFE.org (Women's Institute for Financial Education).

 

Founders Candace Bahr and Ginita Wall founded the group because of their passion to provide financial education. With WIFE, Bahr and Wall aimed to drive ownership and understanding for women and their money and is now "the oldest non-profit organization dedicated to providing financial education to women in their quest for financial independence," according to the Web site.

 

While the group was created back in 1988, the organization has since gone virtual with a Web site filled with a wealth of financial information. Included in their site is information to help women dealing with matters like divorce and widowhood. And as a female-focused foundation, a number of links and connections to other sites can help you find more information about topics relevant to you as a woman.

 

Outside of online, Bahr and Wall also have helped women across the country start their own Money Clubs to promote financial education and responsibility. "Money Clubs are based on the ancient premise that the combined energy of several people focusing on the same problem is many times greater than the sum of the individual energies involved," Bahr and Wall say on their Web site.

 

While we are not promoting this Web site as a source of accurate and appropriate information to your specific situation, the purpose of the site itself is of a pure and well-intended collaboration focused on women and their financial well-being. It may possibly bring value to you, but as always, make sure you keep the information in perspective to how it applies to you.
