~~~~~  The Program  ~~~~~

DGSF serves anyone who wants to learn smarter money skills, but our heart is to help families in crisis. We currently support all ages (3 – 103) with age guided financial literacy education.

We believe that the magic to life-long family financial well being and the cornerstone to breaking generational poverty lies in fun, whole family simultaneous learning that allows every family member to get on the same money page, set goals, and grow their money muscles – at the same time – in their best learning style.

Our foundation offers four modular, age-appropriate packages to serve all people, listed below

Our array of engaging content—articles, quizzes, puppets, videos, plus practical digital learning tools and modules including apps—are designed to educate on personal finance in a meaningful, personal, and fun way
