How Your Donation Impacts the Community and Helps Individuals

Helping people gain independence benefits both the individual and the community. When people become less reliant on government programs, family members, and other organizations, it creates healthier communities.

$25 donation provides an Iowan in your community the opportunity to have an hour-long, one-on-one coaching session with an Iowa Able financial coach and establish goals related to his or her finances.

$30 donation provides an Iowan in your community the opportunity to have an hour-long, one-on-one coaching session with either an Iowa Able credit coach or resource coach. A credit coach helps an Iowan specifically improve his or her credit report and score. A resource coach provides an Iowan with customized resource options so their financial needs can be met by other resources in the community.

$35 donation provides an Iowan in your community the opportunity to have an hour-long, one-on-one coaching session with an Iowa Able benefits coach. This coach will help Iowans with disabilities understand how work income may affect SSI and SSDI benefits.
