Partner Profile: NerdWallet: Nerds Paying it Forward in the Tenderloin
NerdWallet, founded in 2009, is focused on helping people lead better lives through financial education and empowerment. According to NerdWallet, their employee-led corporate social responsibility program, NerdsPayItForward, “focuses on empowering our neighbors in the Tenderloin to lead better lives through financial education and empowerment.”
“There’s a great wealth divide happening in San Francisco, and tech companies, including NerdWallet, have a huge opportunity to help diminish it. NerdsPayItForward is our way of encouraging employees to become allies of the surrounding community through educational opportunities with local organizations and frequent volunteer outings in the neighborhood.”
Today, TNDC is proud to say that NerdWallet is one of our dedicated and caring corporate partners. NerdWallet raised funds as “Tossees” at our 2014 Celebrity Pool Toss; held a college financial aid workshop at their offices for our Tenderloin After-School Program (TASP) teens; frequently tutor at TASP; and have become regulars at TNDC’s Tenderloin People’s Garden. Thank you NerdWallet!
