Philanthropy New York, in collaboration with The Philanthropy Roundtable, will host this event to explore strategies to help low-income workers pursue economic independence through financial development and wealth building.  Leaders from the philanthropic, nonprofit, and financial services industry will discuss the importance of assets in low-income financial portfolios and share opportunities for expanding access to financial goods and services to bolster asset development. 
The program opens with a tour and reception on September 11th at the Tenement Museum on Manhattan’s lower east side, followed by a full-day conference on September 12th.
