OUR OBJECTIVE

Personal Finance UW is a personal development initiative that dedicates an effort to the promotion and education of financial literacy, planning, and investing. We believe the more we can make investing and financial planning clear, the more doors we can open for students to succeed as they transition to their adult lives.

OUR FOUNDING

Personal Finance at UW was founded by a group of graduating UW seniors in 2023 who had a mission to bring financial literacy education to students across the University of Washington. Although we started with small seminars led by our executives, we have grown to incorporate a variety of speaker events, workshops, and panels covering topics ranging from budgeting and saving to investing and debt management. Our initiatives are designed not just for business majors but for all students, regardless of their field of study, recognizing that financial literacy is a crucial skill for personal and professional success. Through our efforts, Personal Finance at UW aims to stay true to our founding mission and create a campus-wide culture of financial wellness and literacy that will prepare students for a lifetime of financial health and success.
