Making An Impact

The numbers and the stories.

What we’re aiming for

We work with individuals and families to build brighter financial futures.

Whether that’s through helping people file taxes and boost their income, save for emergencies, reduce their debt or make progress toward another financial goal, or access financial products and services that will help them build wealth (not strip it), we’re working to change the financial landscape so that everyone has an equal opportunity to achieve financial success.

In 2016:

  • Identified and filed for $25.3 million in refunds for taxpayers in Minnesota
  • Assisted 13,461 taxpayers in filing 28,712 tax returns, free of charge
  • Enlisted the help of 575 volunteers who donated 28,607 hours
  • Helped 1,234 taxpayers to save more than $1.9 million
  • 139 people are working toward their financial goal in our coaching program, Money Mentors
