Welcome to Project Money
Life changing and Award winning financial education
Project Money is a unique chance for four teams to help take control of their finances and improve their daily lives. Throughout the program, the teams work directly with a Summit financial coach who provides personalized strategies and resources to make impactful changes.
more than money
Project Money is about more than just managing money – it’s about achieving a better life. Additionally, it goes beyond participating teams by inspiring their friends, families and neighbors in surrounding communities to follow along and learn from their shared experiences.
“We created Project Money to help participants better their daily lives in a format that also inspires thousands of our neighbors to improve their financial wellness and lives, too. At its heart, Project Money is a public financial education program that helps people, families and larger communities become financially stronger through real-life financial tips they can put into action.”
-Kim Sponem, CEO & President
In the past 14 seasons, Project Money participants have increased their savings by $637,875 and decreased their debt by $579,480.
Watch as the participants build budgets, pay off debt and figure out how to make every dollar count! At the end of the seven-month challenge, we’ll see which team demonstrates the most change, and the winner will be rewarded a $10,000 prize, while the other three teams each receive $2,500.
Throughout the journey, we’ll document each team’s progress for the entire community to get inspired as they share their experiences on Madison’s WKOW TV, write weekly blogs, and post learnings on their social media pages.
Come back and visit this Project Money webpage often to follow their stories and candid conversations.
