San Diego Financial Literacy Center

Boost For Our Heroes

A program geared towards active duty, transitioning and veteran military members in which the focus is to provide them with financial education.  Through a variety or workshops, outreach efforts and one-on-one consultations with our partners, our goal is to help our men and women of the Armed Forces become financially fit.

Each quarter, an impartial panel will select a constituent(s) who will be awarded a $3,000 stipend due to financial hardship. To date the SDFLC has given $36,000 to twelve service members since 2014. You can view videos of our recent award winners on our YouTube Channel.

So, if you are living paycheck-to-paycheck, facing high amounts of credit card debt, unable to make your rent or mortgage payment, or have faced any other financial crisis, we are here to help! By working closely with our military partners in the San Diego community, we are determined to make an impact on those that give so much each day.



The 4th quarter winners James and Jasmine Phinex!

The 2017 2nd quarter application is coming soon!
