Align Your Money with Your Values: a two-part Webinar series

You know what you’re spending and investing… but what exactly are you financing?

February 9 & 16, 4:00 – 5:30 PM on Zoom

You get to vote only a few times a year, but with every purchase or investment you are casting a vote for the world you want to live in. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to know what your money is supporting. 

  • Many retailers and service providers make political donations with the profits from your purchase. 

  • While you’re out protesting against fracking or another environmental problem, the cards in your pocket and the dollars in your bank account may be funding those activities.

  • Your investment funds may include companies and industries that you don’t want to support.

This two-part webinar helps you understand what your money is supporting. Part one focuses on your spending choices, and part two on investing. Whether you have a lot of money or a little, and whether you’re just beginning the accumulation stage of your financial journey or are well into retirement, these webinars provide practical advice for using the financial power you have to help bring about the future you want. 

Our objective is to empower you to:

  • “Follow the money” so that you know which companies are making which political donations

  • Select the bank and credit card that best aligns with your values

  • Evaluate and prioritize your spending on home improvements for return on financial investment as well as maximum carbon savings per dollar spent

  • Choose funds and stocks in alignment with your values

  • Get the big picture of how a wealth manager creates a "green" portfolio

  • Support your favorite nonprofits more efficiently

Each webinar features three experts who will help you understand each of these issues and will provide practical advice on how you can take action that aligns your money with your values. We will conclude each webinar with a Q&A period.
