Starting a FAN Club
Real Goals. Real Results.
Launched in 2004, Financial Advancement Network (FAN) Clubs are groups of five to 20 people gathered together by a Host Agency who commit to meeting together on a regular basis to improve their money management habits, get their financial situations under control and go after their financial goals. Each FAN Club meets for six sessions, conducted by an expert in topics such as saving for tuition, paying down debts, improving credit scores or implementing a balanced budget. FAN Club members are encouraged to share with each other their progress in reaching personal financial goals.
Once a local community group, place of employment or school commits to hosting a FAN Club at a particular site, the Urban Affairs Coalition trains the club hosts to start the club, provides trainers and helps you to recruit members. The Coalition continues to work closely with both the host and the club leaders (President and Vice President) to help make individual clubs a success.
There is no cost to run FAN Clubs.
