Flitity...what is that?
When you take the words Financial, Literacy, and Prosperity and mix them up a little, you get Flitity! But what are we talking about when we say financial literacy and prosperity? Essentially, we mean awareness, understanding, and a working knowledge of fundamental and impactful financial concepts by the Financial Literacy part. We want you to know about things that are going to impact your everyday life. As far as Prosperity goes, we hope that by becoming financially literate, you end up happier and healthier in both your financial life and well, in life in general.
Is Flitity recognized as a 501c3 by the IRS?
The good news is that Flitity officially submitted the 1023EZ application to the IRS on May 18th, 2016. The bad news is that the IRS has not officially approved the application just yet. We are hopeful that we are officially recognized as a 501c3 organization in a few short months and we’ll keep you posted!
Do you offer advice, guidance, opinions or something else?
The answer to this one is: something else. Through our courses, we offer INFORMATION that is specific to different financial concepts. You can then use that information to make decisions related to your situation. We are not certified financial planners, accounts, investors, or anything else along those lines…we are pretty damn good with numbers though.
How do I take a course?
Taking a course is pretty straight forward. The first thing you’ll need to do is register with Flitity. You can do that here if you haven’t already. Next, navigate to the Flitity Courses page and take a look at what we have to offer. Some courses are free while others come with a small fee. Click the Take this Course button, pay if applicable, and you’re all set!
I can't find the course I registered for
If you’ve started a course and then log off, the best way to find the course again is to navigate to the “Courses” section under the “My Profile” page located on the main navigation menu. From there, you can find the courses you’ve registered for and with a click, get right back into them.
What is Flitity Connect?
Many people, websites, and even organizations hesitate when it comes to talking about finance. Ask yourself, when is the last time you asked anybody outside of your immediate household how much they make and/or how much debt they have? Those conversations aren’t typically socially acceptable. We think that’s too bad and we’re looking to change it! With Flitity Connect, you can engage with other registered members and talk about finance. Ask questions about salary, talk about the pros and cons of buying a new car, learn about how others got out of debt, and more. NOTE: Never share personal bank account, credit card, or other sensitive information! We strongly encourage you to discuss your situation with accuracy but not precision. For example, “I’m 30 years old working as an Analyst in Los Angeles making approximately $60,000 per year. I’m thinking about buying a car…good choice or hold off?”. This gives others a good overview of your situation but does not provide access to personal and/or sensitive information about you.
