IFWA Alumni range from young arts professionals, working musicians, dancers, and rising Broadway stars to Grammy, Tony, and Oscar-winning superstars who all share one common belief: it's cool to be smart about money and to plan ahead, for ourselves and our families, with the goal of financial stability and wellness.
Our Alumni understand the importance of sharing their IFWA experience with other artists and arts professionals who would also benefit from feeling more knowledgeable and confident about their financial situations. As they’ve learned from taking charge of own financial lives, it doesn’t matter where you are in your career—it’s never too early or too late to begin a financial strategy for yourself. What’s critical is to engage an accredited, experienced, compassionate financial coach like those on the IFWA team who continue to work with our esteemed alumni.
