let's figure out how we can help

I’d like to try something a little different this time around. Rather than me talking at you, I’m hoping you can talk to me — specifically, about how BGFS can give back to the community.

We engage in some giving already, of course: “pre-investing” sessions are effectively subsidized such that I don’t plan on raising the price within the next decade, and BGFS donates to Austin Children’s Shelter each month. But I’d like to do more, and I’d love it if you were involved in what that looks like. So, I’m going to keep this short and to the point, to give you room to talk: what ideas do you have on this front? A few ideas to get things percolating:

  • Volunteer with Cornerstone Financial Education

  • Donate a specific portion of each client’s investment fees to Cornerstone, or Austin Children’s Services, or Habitat for Humanity, etc. etc.

  • Hold drives for food/clothing/etc. periodically throughout the year (may want an office for this…)

  • Create a free or low-cost web tool or app to help with finances. (Sure, it’s a crowded market, but there’s always room for a unique idea. What do you wish were out there?)

So — what do you think? What would you like to see?
