Financial Literacy Institute unveils enhanced website

Jun 14, 2012

The Delaware Financial Literacy Institute with support from ING DIRECT and Delmarva Digital has launched an updated and comprehensive website, designed to better promote the hundreds of classes and other programs it offers.

DFLI board members and invited guests received a sneak preview of the website, led by Board President Emilio Cooper. Gov. Jack Markell sent a video greeting thanking ING DIRECT and Delmarva Digital for their support in bringing a new face and current technology to the 10-year-old website of the organization he founded as state treasurer.

“This enhanced site takes our organization to the next level,” said Ronni Cohen, DFLI executive director. “We’re very grateful for the support of ING DIRECT, especially project leader and board member Jeff Chapman, and Delmarva Digital for their help in bringing our vision of the new to life.”

Founded as The Money School in 1999 by then State Treasurer Jack Markell, DFLI incorporated in 2001 and opened its office in 2002. Since then, DFLI has provided more than 5,000 free classes, events and programs statewide. A not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, DFLI’s mission is to equip individuals - especially those of low to moderate income - with the tools to get their financial lives in order so that they can become self-sufficient and enjoy financial well-being over time.

Best known for its signature program, The Money School, DFLI offers education programs for individuals, students and small businesses. Other programs include From Purses to Portfolios; Friends Don’t Let Friends Drown in Debt; Got $avings?; First State Saves; Coalition of Organizations for Delaware Entrepreneurship;BANK AT SCHOOL; and youth programs including Chasing the Dream, a venture creation camp, and The Money Rules Summit for High School Students.
