John Travis, My Why Foundation Co-Founder
August 29 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am
My Why Foundation was founded in 2020 by John Travis and Matthew Travis, two financial advisors who wanted to make an impact in our underserved communities. They work in the financial services industry helping people with retirement by investing in the stock market and making smart financial decisions. While many factors contribute to the wealth gap in America, investing (or not investing) in the stock market is one of the contributing factors, and they have a passion to educate people and can help them open up their first stock market account.
My Why Foundation meets monthly to provide an overview of the stock market and then helps participants open up accounts on-line at Charles Schwab. Two matching programs are available to participants who contribute to their accounts within 45 days. My Why Foundation will match $ for $ up to $100. Charles Schwab will match $100 if $1,000 is invested.
Building wealth takes time. But if we begin to open up accounts and teach our kids, grandkids, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, parents, friends, co-workers, and others we care about, we can begin to close the wealth gap in America. Thank you for your consideration in supporting the My Why Foundation, where 100% of your donations are invested back in the community.
