KickStart Money, the coalition of 20 savings and investment firms, won the Good Money Award at the Better Society’s 2020 award ceremony on the evening of Wednesday 2nd December. The judges commented that the coalition evidenced “the fantastic collaboration taking place across the sectors to address a clear problem”.
KickStart was established through The Investing and Saving Alliance (TISA) in 2017 with a vision to ensure every primary aged child receives a high-quality and effective financial education. KickStart Money has contributed over £1 million to fund the delivery of financial education to over 18,000 primary school children, delivered by the charity MyBnk. The coalition has also funded three year-long evaluations of this programme that prove the benefits of financial education at a primary level.
The Better Society’s Awards are designed to recognise commercial companies which are helping create a better, more equal, ethical, and sustainable world for all.click here
