General Treasurer Gina Raimondo recently showed her thanks to the Fidelity Investments employees who volunteered for the Capital Good Fund’s Financial Coaching Corps by awarding each member a citation commending them for their involvement.

More than 30 Fidelity employee volunteers made a six-month commitment to the Financial Coaching Corps., where they signed up to teach members of the Year Up and Teach For America programs how to take charge of their own finances through free one-on-one financial-planning sessions.

“The success of the Financial Coaching Corps program is a direct result of the dedication of the coaches,” said Raimondo. “These volunteers have gone beyond what is expected of them to help their clients work towards financial empowerment.”

Raimondo has partnered with the Capital Good Fund, a social change organization that uses financial services to tackle poverty in America, to organize the Rhode Island Financial Coaching Corps, which pairs volunteers with Rhode Islanders looking to receive coaching in budgeting, credit and debt. •
