KNOWLEDGE IS POWER |
FORMAT | Presentation
THE OVERVIEW | If we’re lucky, we have 940 Saturdays from the day our child is born, before they leave for college. Invest them wisely.
$2.50 invested each Saturday would give your child access to $8,784* and the knowledge, education and confidence to empower them for a lifetime to come.
In honour of a new year, new beginnings and renewed resolutions, READ Saskatoon is offering organizations across Saskatchewan the opportunity to host FREE, unbiased RESP information sessions.
Many parents aren’t aware of the free money that’s available to them for their child’s future education; even without having to contribute a penny. Not to mention being unaware of or intimidated by, the registration process.
“The anxiety or dread we may feel towards our finances is often rooted in lack of action or knowledge. Come out, learn more and feel better. Let this session be a first step towards financial empowerment for your children. A mom myself, offering an unbiased perspective, I invite you to join me for a fun and informative hour where I’ll cover the basic needed to get started with RESPs.” Taunya Woods Richardson
