About Our Financial Garden
Our Mission

What We Stand For

Our mission is to improve the financial health of communities. The seed is the child, the plant is the family and the garden is the community!

Our Commitment

We Are Providing an Environment for Our Students to Grow & Excel

Financial Garden students don’t just learn about important financial concepts, they are given the opportunity to apply the concepts in every session!  Students love Financial Garden because of the opportunity to actually save, spend, give and grow. We work hard to bridge the gap of knowing the right thing to do with money and actually DOING the right thing.
Our Vision

Teaching the Professionals of tomorrow

Kids begin to develop their financial schema (building blocks of knowledge) at the time the words “can you buy this” are spoken. We work to enhance the financial schema by concentrating on counting money, delaying gratification through saving and ways to earn money through entrepreneurship!
A deeper dive is made at this age group level to ensure students are able to discuss finances in accordance with the knowledge statements set forth by National Standards in K-12 Personal Finance Education.
While all six areas of financial seed planting are taught to each grade level; a strong focus on life skills of debt avoidance (student loans), investing (stocks) and banking is held with Middle and High School students.
aBOUT OUR FOUNDER

tASHA dANIELLE, CPA

founded Financial Garden during her journey of eliminating nearly $80k of debt before the age of 30! Tasha’s grandmother taught her about finances at an early age and this influenced her to become a financially responsible millennial. However, it became apparent that not all of her peers were exposed to money lessons at a young age. Which led Tasha to believe that this may have contributed to the financial struggles faced as an adult. After working with youth for several years, she realized their lack of financial literacy. Tasha decided to plant seeds of financial literacy at every age by formally founding Financial Garden in 2014.

Tasha has a decade of corporate finance and accounting experience with Fortune 100 and 500 companies. She has also authored “Amina’s Bracelets: A Kidpreneur Story” to plant the seed of entrepreneurship in young children. The book is available on Amazon!
