imagine our community impact if we taught
how to build wealth and avoid the pitfalls of money management. We're creating a community that understands financial literacy . . . starting with eight cents.
8 Cents in a Jar, Inc. — an award-winning Florida 501c(3) nonprofit — creates opportunities for students in marginalized neighborhoods and communities of color to achieve economic mobility through financial education.
We teach students how to save money, acquire assets, and diminish the cycle of generational poverty. Starting at the age of 8, we develop students from elementary through high school and higher education. Our efforts help students avoid common pitfalls with money management and take advantage of wealth accumulation at an early age in life across generations.
Personal finance and economic mobility are more important than ever for students. We're dedicated to changing the lack of proper financial education for students.

8 CENTS IN A JAR FORMED
TOTAL STUDENTS SERVED
ADDED STUDENT WEALTH
I came into the Change Academy session as a very nervous first-generation immigrant student clueless about financial literacy. I left confident and relaxed, comfortable with my ability to share resources with my family. The team at 8 Cents in a Jar made learning fun and exciting; words you don't think about as you learn about finances. I finally feel equipped to take control of my financial future.
