WHY OUR WORK MATTERS.

 

We use education & opportunity to create wealth.
The goal of Bridges to Wealth is to reduce the wealth disparity across white and minority households. We believe the increasing differentials in wealth indicate the need for a new social intervention. Our choice is simple, low-cost, and community-focused. Our program increases the investing returns of our participants by more than 8 times.
