Intuit's Alliances With Nonprofits
Who Benefits and How
In forming alliances, we focus on a few designated programs that we seek out proactively. Often, these alliances continue over several years. This allows us to make a deeper and more lasting impact on specific social issues. We cannot consider unsolicited proposals.
Intuit supports economic empowerment through alliances with nonprofits in programs such as these:
Financial Literacy for Battered Women
To help battered women gain control of their financial lives and build better futures for themselves and their children, Intuit worked with the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the National Endowment for Financial Education to expand the Financial Literacy Project for Battered Women. This two-year program provides 150 domestic-violence agencies with training to start financial literacy programs.
Personal Finance for Teachers
To help teachers make sound financial judgments for themselves and to encourage them to build financial literacy into class curricula, Intuit has collaborated with theCalifornia Jump$tart Coalition and the Nasdaq Educational Foundation. Intuit and Nasdaq are jointly providing funding for this program for two years. California Jump$tart Coalition is creating and managing the program. The California Society of CPAs is providing financial literacy training for the program.
Small Business Rebuilding
Within two weeks of the 9/11 attacks, Intuit offered assistance in rebuilding New York small businesses, including:
By collaborating with the New York State SBDC, Intuit was able to contribute to assisting 12,500 small business owners and saving 1,300 New York City jobs.
