A donation-based course
Boost your Wallet. Wellbeing. World.
Instead of a typical fee you might normally see for a finance course, we instead ask you to make a charitable donation. Yield & Spread does not profit from any of its courses. It was created to build as much good as possible. We help you learn about finance, and you give back.
As part of your registration, you will donate to any of the charities listed at our organization of choice GiveWell.org. When you register for the course, you’ll provide confirmation of your donation. The suggested donation amount is $50.00.
Is this course right for me?
Yield & Spread is best suited for people of all ages, no matter what your income level is. It was designed for people residing in the US. If you've ever asked any of the following questions, this course is right for you.
I've heard of stocks and bonds, but what are they really?
How much cash do I need to save vs. how much do I need to invest?
I have a good job, but why can't I achieve my financial goals?
It seems like I'll never be able to retire at the rate I'm going
I have a financial planner but I don't really know what they are doing with my money
This will be a safe space. A judgement free zone.
It will require some vulnerability on your part. We want to encourage you to share as much as possible, as it will be key to a robust learning experience. Together, we'll break the taboo of "money talk", and we promise we'll all be better for it!
