MakingChange hosts a variety of financial wellness events throughout the year, like the annual Money Matters Fair held in early spring.
Last year, the Money Matters Fair, sponsored by BGE, attracted more than 250 attendees who came to learn about issues such as living within your means, college funding options, preparing for retirement and caring for aging parents.
