Program Planning 0466 / Professor Kuldulka
“Stand Up For Seniors” is a non-profit organization that is designed to help senior residents in the Zumbrota area in a variety of daily living tasks. Since the inception of the program the scope has expanded to take on more and more services. One of the most requested services is that of sound financial management.
“Cents makes Sense” is a program that will provide these services to our community. The need exists in our community to provide professional, sound advice to our expanding senior population. As we grow this service we will have the opportunity to facilitate classes to teach seniors the ins and outs of managing finances. The objective of the program is to foster a comfort level in the clients in the daily management of their finances. This will ultimately lead to a better quality of life for the people that are served.
The program has a budget of $3986.00for the first six months. We are seeking $2411.00 for the start up of this project. We have received $1575.00 thus far and plan to be self-sustaining within a year’s time. Appropriate review and evaluation processes are planned to ensure the individuals in the community are served.
This is a very important issue to our community. We Iook forward to your support.
