Join a community of women transforming
the world through values-aligned investing
Invest for Better is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that equips women with the skills and confidence to take charge of their assets for positive change. Through a values-aligned investing community, expert-backed financial education, monthly events, and facilitated learning circles, our members build confidence and grow their wealth while championing sustainability and social justice.
There are many places to learn about investing. IFB is unique. If you are like us, you definitely want to build your investing knowledge and grow your wealth, but you want more. You don’t want to climb that mountain alone. You want to learn from women who have gone there before. You want a place to talk about your money, to share your hopes and fears. You want a community of support. IFB’s study groups – our Circle Experience – gives you exactly that.
We built our curriculum in partnership with trusted advisors and experts who helped us during our own financial journeys. Our carefully crafted courses are designed to cater to individuals at every skill level, spanning from novices to experienced investors. What sets us apart is our unique Circle Experience, which not only equips you with knowledge but also provides the opportunity to put that knowledge into action, side by side with women who share your ambitions.
In addition, you want to know the impact your investments are having in the world. You don’t want your money invested in companies that are profiting from fossil fuels, prisons, or weapons. You want your money invested in companies that are creating solutions, forging a new path that will lead to a sustainable planet and society that you will feel proud handing off to your children and grandchildren. You want to uplift other women and support your local community. In our Courses, you will discover options to make the world a better place with your cash, your stocks – all your assets.
We don’t have to buy into the current financial system, which was developed by men for men. By 2030, women will have benefited from one of the largest wealth transfers in the world. We will control a majority of the money. We have the opportunity to determine where money flows – and who benefits from those investments. IFB is working with hundreds of others to catalyze a movement in which women are using their collective power to up-end the structural and cultural inequities in the capital markets.
Join a vibrant community of 1,000+ women, participate in our courses, monthly events, and quarterly gatherings to discover effective investment strategies aligned with your personal goals. Embrace this unique opportunity for candid financial discussions among like-minded women who provide the encouragement and support you need to achieve your financial and social aspirations.

“A personal passion of mine is sustainable fashion. Fast fashion is one of the largest producers of waste for our planet and is deeply detrimental for the workers producing the clothing.”

Rich discussions, investment ideas, and open office hours
Every month our members access optional live events for knowledge enrichment and experience sharing. While many are exclusive, some are open to the public. Members can explore archived events on our private community platform. Some of our public webinars are posted on the Invest for Better YouTube channel, which also features Fireside chats, training videos, and other free content.
Activate Your Money: Invest to Grow Your Wealth and Build a Better World was written by Invest for Better co-founder, Janine Firpo. Not only does it chronicle her personal investment journey, it provides detailed information on how you can build on what she learned for your own portfolio. Elements of the book, which was a collaborative effort that included almost 150 women (and a few men), are integrated into many of the courses offered by Invest for Better. A copy of the book is provided for new members in both our Basic and Premium plans.
