Certainly, we are seeing one of the highest unemployment rates ever, including the largest over-the-month increase in the history of record keeping (i.e., unemployment rates have been tracked since 1948). With unemployment, wage loss, and inconsistent health insurance, we know personal finances for many are impacted. Trust us, we’re in the same boat. To get our finances in order so we can maintain resiliency through these tough times, we’re sharing our curated list of 9 Tools to Do Good with your Personal Banking.
Did you know socially conscious banks exist? Yes, we’re referring to a bank who focuses on doing better for people and the planet. Luckily, there is a growing number of financial institutions working to incorporate sustainability and ethics into their mission. Opening a personal checking account from Beneficial State Bank empowers change-makers to work toward meaningful social justice outcomes and environmental sustainability. The Charity Charge card helps you earn cash back on every purchase as a tax deductible donation to any non-profit of your choice.
Along with banking institutions who think on behalf of their customers, it’s just as important to plan ahead with a personal budget planner from Better World Books. The first step to taking control of your budget is to plan, which costs nothing. After that, choosing budget friendly credit cards and banks will help you get started to financial stability, so start sifting through the 9 Tools to Do Good with your Personal Banking.
