“Tasha Danielle, CPA founded Financial Garden LLC, now Financial Garden Community Inc., during her journey of eliminating $80k of debt before the age of 30. Tasha's grandmother taught her about finances at an early age, and this influenced her to become a financially responsible millennial. Tasha’s debt was largely due to student loans, and because of her early financial literacy exposure, she had the plan to tackle the debt before her 30th birthday! However, it became apparent that not all of her peers were exposed to money lessons at a young age, and most of them struggled financially. As a result, Tasha decided to plant seeds of financial literacy at every age by formally founding Financial Garden in 2014. Tasha developed the curriculum in accordance with National Standards in K – 12 Personal Finance Education. Financial Garden also published "Amina's Bracelets: A Kidpreneur Story" to teach students how to reach financial goals through entrepreneurship! Financial Garden has financially educated over 1,000 students & has received national recognition from Essence Magazine and Pine-Sol!”Tasha Danielle, CPAFounder & Executive Director

My students learned how to earn and count money; which helped with improving their math skills. The kids also learned the importance of saving and giving money to a charity.Crystal CofieldKindergarten and 1st Grade Tutor - Wayne Metropolitan Community Action Agency
