Women in Philanthropy & $en$e-Ability
Individual Development Accounts

Article

We use your gifts to fund nonprofits in five counties to work with low-income households and foster youth to help them understand how to manage finances and increase savings.

As part of $en$e-Ability, United Way’s Women in Philanthropy is supporting work with foster youth to increase self-sufficiency through Individual Development Accounts, bank accounts that provide a 2:1 match for every dollar a foster youth saves.

The Results

Of 1,288 first-year adult participants who completed training, 62% demonstrate better financial skills and now have savings accounts.

Of the 200 foster youth in the program, 90% completed the training and earned credits toward matched savings accounts called Individual Development Accounts.
