Hey There!

Whether you subscribe to She Spends or not, we're happy you're here.

She Spends is a website, newsletter and community giving people the actionable tools they need to close the wage, investing and board seat gaps.


Today, white women make 79 cents on the dollar white men make, while black women make 63 cents on the dollar, native women make 57 cents and Hispanic women make 54 cents. Did you know that of all the assets controlled by women, only 29% is invested? Additionally, women hold just 16.9% of all Fortune 500 board seats.

As a result, our voices aren’t being heard by corporate America. Women endure sexual harassment and assault in the workplace, and our best ideas often go ignored because there are so few of us at the top. Meanwhile, we’re unable to build wealth at the same rate that men are, both because our wages are lower and because we don’t invest the money we do make.

Here at She Spends, we say the status quo is unacceptable. Our content gives people the tools they need to tackle these issues in their daily lives.

We’ve already helped women ask for raises, negotiate job offers, start investing and advocate for themselves in the workplace... but we're not there yet. Our dream is that the wage, investing and board seat gaps will no longer exist. Your patronage can help us continue to create tools that empower women to hammer away at the glass ceiling.


What We Do
😎
-

We write, edit and distribute a weekly newsletter on money that covers topics ranging from current events and personal finance tips to spotlighting women killing it in the workplace. That newsletter becomes a part of our website, which includes a blog and recommended resources beyond She Spends.

We answer questions and facilitate meaningful conversations among a community of subscribers via our Facebook group. Women have asked for raises, started investing and made career connections with the support of their She Spends community.

We host events on money, career and more, connecting women across fields and career maturity levels to learn from and lean on one another.


From Our Community
🔥
-

"I love reading about how people are investing and saving. It gives me inspiration to keep working hard toward my money goals."

"Used the section on how to use 10K reports to look into companies I want to invest in - I knew they existed but never knew what to do with them, and was too intimidated by them before now!"

"Seeing other people's donations to charities has helped me realize I have the means to donate too. I won't miss a couple dollars here and there especially if it can do some good!"

"The newsletter is a *really* good way to sober a gal up about savings."

"I've advocated for a promotion and raise, and got them!"


Your Pledge
🌟
-

She Spends has grown exponentially in the past year with three hard-working women spending their nights and weekends writing the newsletter, making it look amazing and answering community questions in the Facebook group. It's time to take things to the next level while still keeping the essence of She Spends the same. While we may occasionally partner with sponsors, we need your monetary support to meaningfully grow She Spends.

If you've ever read a She Spends newsletter, taken action on a tip from the community or made a connection, we're asking for a little support. Your pledge will cover:

  • Costs related to site maintenance and newsletter distribution
  • Costs related to contributor growth
  • Costs related to event sponsorship
  • Costs related to audio equipment

As a patron, you'll have access to a behind-the-scenes newsletter we'll produce monthly. We'll let you in on where we are in the process of building She Spends, give you personal career updates and ask for your feedback on potential She Spends initiatives. You'll have a say in the direction of She Spends and help us shape it into the best resource for you.

The more you donate, the cooler the rewards - so check 'em out!
