LEGUP Secure Our Wealth
"People are searching for their purpose and want to build individual, family, and business legacies beyond financial success."
- David Griffiths, Founder of Brothers Who Care
How do we Secure our Wealth?
LEGUP is part of the Brothers Who Care Secure Our Wealth (SOW) project. We will begin to secure wealth in the BIPOC community by placing a higher focus on the psychology of money and methods to better utilize and grow it. As a community, we need to feel confident about meeting our financial goals and creating generational wealth.
We will be targeting young people 18-29 years old, as well as early and mid-stage professionals and entrepreneurs. The “LEG UP” framework will break down the information, income wealth & racial wealth gaps in the financial system.
Our view of money is formed in different worlds, and when that is the case, a view about money that one group of people thinks is outrageous can make perfect sense to another. It is why the Secure our Wealth Project has three programs that explore frameworks for creating financial safety and well being.
LEGUP Mastermind Group
The LEG-UP project is anchored by a MasterMind group of professionals (18-29 years old), who will act as influencers to help redefine what it means to secure wealth in BIPOC communities.
The LEG-UP Mastermind Group is a peer-to-peer growth community that helps members secure a stronger financial future. Members pour into and receive advice from each other and act as a funnel to pass on knowledge to the larger community.
LEGUP Mastermind Group project examples
Some project examples include:
- Save/invest 10-15% of all income for 6 months - how were you able to use the capital
- Regular discussions about current opportunities in the market, good stocks/crypto to buy, and discussing the overall market trends
- Digital assets, crypto stacking/lending, employment opportunities in the digital age, what skill sets are in demand?
LEGUP Community Hub
The LEG-UP Community HUB comprises 500 BIPOC professionals, 18-29 years old, who are inspired by the LEG-UP MasterMind Group to take charge of their: personal, professional and financial future.
We polled young people to get a sense of the potential needs of young entrepreneurs: How do you attract them? What does success look like?
Secure Our Wealth LEGUP Symposium
LEG-UP symposium is a gathering of dreamers, builders, and trailblazers that are disrupting the wealth creation process. This yearly, one-day symposium will empower BIPOC professionals to take on big financial challenges with bold actions.
It does not happen until sponsors make it happen. Our vision was a mere dream until our sponsors breathed life into it with their support. TD Bank Financial group, LifeWorks, YAACE, Bridge2WellBeing; we cannot thank you enough for playing such a significant role in the development of the Secure Our Wealth Project.
