"It was the best thing I'd ever done...
I'm not afraid anymore." - Ruby
How does CAP Money work?
It's a FREE budgeting course you offer in your church.
Typically runs as three weekly sessions a couple of times a year.
Can be run in a group setting, by a benevolence team 1-1, in a coffee shop, as a stewardship course, for students, care nights, or marriage prep – the possibilities are endless!
We train your key volunteers to be CAP Money Coaches who facilitate the course in your context.
Run the course as many times in a year as you like.
We visit your church to launch our partnership and invite monthly supporters to join us as Life Changers (supporting the free Debt Relief work we do that's so critical for people in financial distress).
How is CAP Money different from other budgeting courses?
CAP meets the needs of everyone, especially those living on the poverty line by being relevant, short, and free to attend.
Financial Peace or Total Money Makeover sessions are longer and have an approach that alienates the vulnerable.
Wealth/Financial Advisors help people steward money and can provide tailored advice and support.
How much does CAP Money Partnership cost?
The cost is minimal and based around your church’s typical attendance:
$30/month for churches <100
$50/month for churches between 100-250
$100/month for churches between 251-500
If your church attendance is above 501 – let’s chat and work out an amount.
