Financial Coaching & Planning

The CASH Campaign of Maryland offers two great programs to help you reach your financial goals.  Through generous support from the Foundation for Financial Planning and other partners, these high-quality programs are available at no cost to Marylanders.

Financial Coaching offers ongoing, unlimited, one-on-one support to reach your financial goals! The trained coaches work individually with participants and help them to achieve personal financial goals such as eliminating debt, rebuilding credit, and developing spending plans. There are no income guidelines for this program, and anyone can take advantage of this free service.   

The Financial Planning Program is designed to connect Marylanders to a professional, quality financial plan on a range of topics and goals, including, investing, homeownership, college funding, and wills and retirement planning. Our Pro Bono Certified Financial Planners® provide consultations in up to two free sessions.  In keeping with our mission, our aim is to serve low-to-moderate income individuals and families through this program.
