Our History

Founded in 2005, the World of Money is a New York City based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to empower youth through the engaged, local delivery of professional quality financial education. World of Money Founder and CEO, Sabrina Lamb, while attending a financial planning seminar, was inspired by a compelling question. Are children, in the course of their education and upbringing, being taught this how to manage their financial life? After conducting some research on the subject, Ms. Lamb found that the answer to her question was a resounding “no”. So, after affirming the detrimental effects of this knowledge gap, she set forth to leverage her experience as a social entrepreneur, children’s advocate to create World of Money.

Now in our 13th year, World of Money has strengthened our commitment to providing children, as well as families, day-to-day tools for enhancing their financial education and to give them a prosperity mindset and a head start in life. Since our inception, more than 4,000 youth, ages 7 – 18, and have been provided with the needed financial foundation to break a generational cycle of poverty and to change the way youth view money by equipping them with the tenets for a financially responsible and philanthropic life: learn, earn, invest and donate. Our principal objective is to enhance the lives of underrepresented children and young adults in the Tri-State New York City area, the United States and in Senegal, Rwanda, Ghana and South Africa.
