Women and Money: Unique Issues, an Extension curriculum series, is designed to increase women’s financial literacy and capability. From 2012 to 2015, 258 participants completed the program. Evaluations of the 2012 pilot study (n=91) indicated that 100% of the participants learned about unique money issues facing women; 100% of the participants set financial goals; and 97% of the participants developed budgets. From before to after attending the Women and Money: Unique Issues program, 2013-2015 (n=167), participants increased their ability to manage their finances. Paired sample t-tests were conducted. Statistically significant increases in perceived financial abilities were documented across all ten areas that were evaluated by this study. Twenty-six percent of the participants completed a six-month follow up survey to identify financial behavior changes.
