Money Smart Partner Profiles
Over the years, we have developed very strong relationships with a number of community organizations that have benefited greatly from the Money Smart program.
Take a look at just a few of those here.
Director of Training and Program Operations, Vermont Associates for Training and Development, Inc.
"We chose to partner with Merchants Bank and the Money Smart program because it was the right fit for our program Participants, who are mature workers. The information was taught in a very non-intimidating way, with easy to understand terminology. Merchants' statewide branch network accommodated our schedule and the staff was very supportive - going out of their way to help our Participants. I highly recommend this program."
HomeBuyer Education Manager, Champlain Housing Trust
"Our new program, "Ready, Set, Rent!" which helps people who have been denied rentals because of bad credit, has really benefited from Money Smart. The program is in perfect alignment with our overall goals. Money Smart is very comprehensive and uses approachable language - and the extra resource materials for participants to keep is really helpful."
Tangible Assets Coordinator, CVCAC
"Working with our local Merchants Bank President made our Money Smart classes very fun and engaging for our participants. The program makes financial principles easy to understand and relevant. Students can see the benefits of incorporating what they've learned into their everyday decisions. Great program."
