Copyright 2012 Financial Stability Alliance
The Financial Stability Alliance for South Central Indiana was formed in the spring of 2010
when United Way of Monroe County brought together the many nonprofits, financial
institutions, and local government agencies that were helping residents build financial
stability. The FSA partners knew they had the opportunity to make these programs and
services more successful if they were planned comprehensively, linked to one another, and
well known by other service providers. Since then, the Financial Stability Alliance has worked
effectively to foster community-wide collaboration around financial stability and asset
development, and to bring together partners concerned about the economic stability of
individuals and families in our community.
The Financial Stability Alliance for South Central Indiana increases collaboration and
information sharing among financial stability partners and service providers in Brown, Greene,
Monroe, and Owen counties.
Summary of Activities
The Alliance publishes and distributes a monthly e-newsletter, hosts events and trainings,
and works to expand financial stability programs in the region. The Alliance is the lead
partner in several community-wide initiatives and events, including Bank On Bloomington, the
Free Community Tax Service, Money Smart Week, and Share and Connect to Increase
Financial Stability in South Central Indiana.
