A northwest Iowa organization is making national waves. Out of 2,000 applications, the Center for Financial Education was selected as one of 200 finalists for a national competition for the State Farm Neighborhood Assist grant. From the top 200 finalists, 40 will receive a grant of $25,000 from the State Farm Neighborhood Assist program.
Starting August 14, running through August 23, US residents 18-years-old or older, who have a valid email address, can cast 10 votes per day for the Center for Financial Education. The top 40 vote-getters will each receive a $25,000 grant.
Center for Financial Education Director Tricia Driesen says, “It’s exciting to be selected as one of the top two-hundred causes in the nation for the State Farm Neighborhood Assist grant. We are grateful to Cindy Van Wyhe, our local State Farm Insurance Agent for informing us of this program; we know that this is a game changer for us, and has the potential to help many people take charge of their finances.”
State Farm Neighborhood Assist is a philanthropic program that empowers communities to identify issues in their neighborhoods, and has committed one-million dollars to this grant nationwide.
Center for Financial Education has five offices in northwest Iowa and has served clients from 44 zip codes in the last year.
