The Page Group partners with Funding the Future on concert series promoting financial literacy taking place October 5 to 9 at schools across the region
The Page Group of Raymond James, a leading local financial planning team, has announced it will be underwriting a series of financial literacy rock concerts for Philadelphia schools through a partnership with nonprofit Funding the Future.
Using the power of a live rock performance to deliver inspirational lessons of finance and discipline to young people, Funding the Future helps students see their dreams as possibilities. The nonprofit’s performance combines a concert, multimedia presentation and talkback to discuss predatory lending, saving early and the danger of credit card debt, while exposing the myth of overnight success associated with rock stars, athletes and actors. Delivering the infectious rock beats and sage advice is GOODING, a four-person rock band based out of Los Angeles.
The financial literacy rock tour will begin on Oct. 5 and continue through the week, making stops at five local schools.

- Archbishop Wood, Warminster – Tuesday, Oct. 6 at 8 a.m.
- Archbishop Ryan, “Philadelphia – Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 8 a.m.
- Charter High School for Architecture and Design, “Philadelphia – Thursday, Oct. 8 at 12:30 p.m.

“It is so important to deliver messages of financial literacy and discipline at an early age,” said Danielle Page, CFP® and managing director of The Page Group of Raymond James. “My father shared these values with me when I was young, and now I have the opportunity to do the same for area students through the powerful message that GOODING delivers.”
Page’s father, George Page, founded The Page Group in 1973 and brought her on in 1984 as a financial advisor. He mentored her in sound financial management, passing on lessons of disciplined spending and future-focused investments. Continuing with tradition, Page has shared these lessons with her children and, whenever possible, the young adults of her clients.
“The Page Group believes in giving back, so we’re excited to be underwriting such an effective and fun program for the young people in our community,” said Erin Cresko, AAMS®, FPQPTM, financial planning consultant at The Page Group. “The band members of GOODING can reach these students in ways that your typical professional in a suit and tie could not. They truly impact the way students view their money.”
