Lilly Endowment Project on Financial Well-Being

Conversations about finances can be awkward and analyzing our own financial situation can be confusing and frustrating. Regardless of our personal discomfort or the levels of confusion and frustration, it’s important to be aware of our level of financial literacy and to develop an understanding of the world of finance so that we can be good stewards of God’s good gifts to us and so that we can model that stewardship for our colleagues and the congregations and institutions we serve. These materials are intended to assist our students and graduates in understanding the concepts of financial literacy; improving their financial literacy; understanding the short- and long-term impact of debt; developing knowledge and skills for managing debt; identifying resources for supporting their studies at Brite Divinity School; and, intentionally planning for the future.

We hope that you find these resources helpful and that you will check back periodically for any updates we will provide.
