Financial Education for Veterans
Empowering warriors to build a strong foundation and reach their financial goals
The Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) Financial Education program empowers warriors to take charge of and manage their finances to build a strong foundation for themselves and their families. The program offers a variety of opportunities and financial resources for veterans that equip warriors with the tools and support they need to achieve financial wellness today, for a better tomorrow.
No matter where you are on your financial wellness journey, the WWP Financial Education program is here to help with the basics of personal finance, like budgeting, saving, debt -management, and long-term planning. Even if you’re not sure where to start, we’re here to help point you in the right direction and support you along the way.
Every warrior’s financial situation is different, and there is no one-size-fits -all path to financial wellness. We know that factors that are unique to veterans, like disability benefits, can complicate finances if you don’t have the right resources and support. WWP understands these factors and can help equip you with the tools, resources, and confidence you need to navigate your individual financial situation and future.
The path to financial wellness is a long-term commitment that requires ongoing work, which is why we offer resources like webinars, assessments, and articles that cover a wide variety of topics and are available to warriors and their families at any time. Even once you’ve reached your financial goals, our team and resources are here to help you stay informed and motivated to continue setting and reaching new goals that build the best future for you and your family.
