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 2022:

  • Identified and filed for $16.2 million in refunds for taxpayers in Minnesota
  • Assisted 8,336 taxpayers in filing 19,943 tax returns, free of charge
  • Enlisted the help of 312 volunteers who donated 14,291 hours
  • Helped 292 taxpayers to save more than $762,363 of their tax refunds
  • 103 people are working toward their financial goals in our coaching program, Money Mentors
  • 123 customers enrolled in 177 FAIR bank accounts – 53 checking, 96 savings, and 28 credit builder accounts
  • 616 sole-proprietors filed their taxes and many more received help managing their business finances
