2021 Impact Report

NEIGHBORHOOD ALLIES AND FUND MY FUTURE TEAM UP TO DEEPEN IMPACT

After more than 4 years of a strong partnership that assisted thousands of families to save for their children’s futures, Fund My Future officially became a part of the Neighborhood Allies suite of programs in 2021. Fund My Future moved from Propel Schools to Neighborhood Allies, where the program joined our other Economic Empowerment initiatives, the Financial Empowerment Center and Bank On Allegheny County. The move to Neighborhood Allies provides additional capacity to the team, enabling a broader reach and deeper connection to community partners and families throughout all of Allegheny County. Together, these expanded initiatives provide more opportunities for individuals and families in the Pittsburgh area to increase their knowledge, hope, skills, and assets.
