Enroll in any course, access all our services, join a movement
Most women start their membership in IFB when they sign up for one of our interactive courses, which are organized as Circles of 8-20 women. Others join because they value our other services and want to engage with a community of leaders who are investing their money to build their wealth and create a better world. First year membership donations begin at $125 and include a free copy of Activate Your Money. Thereafter, membership donations begin at only $100 per year. All donations are tax deductible. We keep our pricing low in order to enable all women to participate in this movement.
Benefits of Membership
We are a community of confident female investors, who are leveraging our money to influence the things we care about. We are young, more mature, and everything in between. We come from diverse backgrounds and even live in other parts of the world. Some of us are just starting out and others have significant wealth. Together, we are building a better world.
Our courses were developed by finance professionals. Literally hundreds of women have volunteered their time – from writing Activate Your Money, the ground-breaking book at the heart of many of our courses, to designing our Back to the Basics and Deep Dive courses, to participating as Leaders and Pathfinders. These women are committed to bringing you an exceptional learning experience and to help you invest your values.
IFB recognizes the power that comes from sharing our stories, experiences, and knowledge. We understand that collaboration lightens the load and gets to results more quickly. For that reason, all of our courses are delivered through Circles, small groups of women who learn together and support each other. The IFB Circle Experience is part of what makes us so unique.
Every month, we host optional webinars on topics as diverse as financial intimacy and cryptocurrency. We also present investment opportunities that may interest you – from banks that support the environment to angel investments in female CEOs. Many of our members are financial advisors, who offer open office hours in our Ask the Expert sessions.
As a member of IFB, you are part of a movement of women who are empowered to activate the power of their investing to build a more equitable and sustainable financial system. You will join a global community of over 1,000 women, including leaders in the financial and impact investing industries. You will connect with them in learning sessions, live regional events, and through our private communications platform.
IFB builds relationships with industry leaders so you can benefit from discounts and additional opportunities. These include:
- Free access to the ValuesAdvisor platform, which helps you search for a values-aligned financial advisor ($700 value)
- 50% discount on membership to the American Sustainable Business Network/Investors Circle, a community of social entrepreneurs, impact investors, and sustainable policy professionals ($600 value)
A free copy of Activate Your Money: Invest to Grow Your Wealth and Build a Better World. Written by Invest for Better co-founder Janine Firpo, the book combines stories of women’s personal finance journeys along with practical and actionable investment strategies. Integrated into many of our courses, Activate Your Money gives you the knowledge you need to make great returns by investing in the communities, people, and companies that match your values.
