The goal of the Money Bus is to encourage Americans to start saving while addressing other important financial issues through workshops, symposiums and personal financial guidance.

The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors’ (NAPFA) Your Money Bus Tour will visit Lubbock from noon-8 p.m. on April 27 at the Grand Court outside of the Men’s Dillard’s at the South Plains Mall.

Texas Tech Red to Black volunteers (personal financial planning majors who are trained and supervised to provide financial counseling services) will volunteer their time to answer questions from community members.

The national Your Money Bus Tour is a consumer outreach initiative in its second year. The bus travels to cities where local financial advisors volunteer their time to sit down with residents and answer any financial questions – free of charge and with no strings attached.

The tour is an educational event that promotes a way to give back to the community, helps residents with their financial questions and encourages Americans to start saving while addressing other important financial issues through workshops, symposiums and personal financial guidance.

The tour is sponsored by the NAPFA Consumer Education Foundation, TD Ameritrade and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine.

Online appointments are available here.
