What is Pro Bono? Pro bono financial planning is free, no strings attached, one-on-one counseling with members of underserved populations, particularly low-income individuals or families. These are often the people with the most need for, but the least access to, basic financial advice. Other pro bono activities include educational programs, such as those of Junior Achievement and the Financial Literacy Coalition of Central Texas, which focus on financial literacy rather than one-on-one counseling.

Pro Bono Opportunities

Austin Habitat for Humanity has received a financial planning grant from the Foundation for Financial Planning. The Austin Financial Planning Association will partner with Habitat to assist their clients with financial guidance through 1:1 coaching, group presentations, and workshops.

Habitat for Humanity will initially reach out to 500 of their members and their expected response will be 50 individuals or families who will want our assistance.

Here is what we need:

  1. FPA members who have the heart and time to help those in need.
  2. FPA members who can commit 1.5 hours for individual coaching sessions.
  3. FPA members who can commit 2 to 3 hours for group presentations or workshops.

If you want to work with Habitat for Humanity to offer your time and expertise or you want more information, please contact Ross Patterson.

We want to keep track of members’ pro bono activities (one-on-one counseling and financial education). We will send you a quarterly survey to provide these to us. Thank you!
