MADE 2 Excel is a 501 C3 non-profit organization based in Chicago, committed to enhancing the lives of adolescents, teenagers, and young adults by providing invaluable financial literacy programs. Our mission is to educate, motivate, and instill sound financial practices and knowledge that will empower youth as they transition into adulthood. In addressing the pressing challenges of our time, we believe in the power of problem solvers who bring diverse perspectives and are unafraid to take calculated risks.
According to the US Department of Health & Human Services, Financial literacy helps people make better informed economic and financial decisions and commit to more rational health behaviors; financially literate people have a lower likelihood of smoking and addiction to gambling, and exercise more frequently.
MADE 2 Excel was born out of a profound aspiration to inspire and actively support our community, where actions carry greater weight than mere words. Although our journey began in 2015, we officially gained recognition as a Nonprofit Organization on February 1st, 2021. Our organization is fueled by progressive ideals, courageous initiatives, and a robust network of support.
We invite you to connect with us to learn more about our mission and explore opportunities to join our cause. Get involved, and together, let's make a difference in the lives of families and young individuals.
