Financial Literacy Workshops

Financial Literacy Workshops

United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk is proud to announce our upcoming series of financial literacy workshops in both Haldimand and Norfolk!

There are four workshops taking place in the communities of Simcoe and Dunnville. You may choose to attend one workshop, or all, to get a better understanding of your finances. The topics covered include budgeting, will planning, loans and more!

The workshops are kindly provided through the Each One Teach One program, and by Mr. Smelko. Thanks to them for their initiative to help the community.

The workshops are:

Introduction to Basic Budgeting – What a budget is and why you should create one.  Tips to help you reach your financial goals.  Ideas to help you adjust your spending.

Loans You Don’t Want – How to calculate the real cost of ‘bad’ loans.  Why payday loans and pawnshop loans are a terrible option.  The real cost of using credit card cash advances.

Loans: Costs and Obligations – How to decide what kind of loan is best for your needs.  How to understand payment terms and obligations.  How interest is calculated and why it matters.

Estate and Will Planning – How to prepare your estate and will.  Why it’s important to have a plan.  What happens to your estate if you don’t have a plan.
