National economic trends, such as unstable employment, the threat to Social Security as we know it, and the widening gap between wealth and poverty are the basis for the development of Financial Fortitude, the current Economic Development program initiative of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated.
As part of this sorority’s Five-Point programmatic thrust. The Brevard County Alumnae Chapter endeavors to provide important programs and initiatives that support the National Financial Fortitude initiative comprising ten components. Financial Fortitude is a process that will help program participants to set and define goals, develop a plan to achieve them, and to put the plan into action. The process serves as a blueprint to address all aspects of personal finances.
These components include: Goal Setting, Financial Planning, Budgeting, Debt Management, Savings & Investments, Retirement Planning, Homeownership, Insurance, Estate Planning, and Entrepreneurship. The initiative helps members of the Sorority spread financial education throughout their local communities.
The Brevard County Alumnae Chapter held two virtual events that provided extensive information that confronts many families who are sometimes ill-prepared for life circumstances.
