New Partnership Works to Provide Financial Education to Students
By Claire Natale - Friday Nov 10, 2023
Gnosis IQ, an Arizona-based artificial intelligence software company that predicts and tracks student academic success and empowers the well-being of students, is thrilled to announce that it is partnering with Desert Financial Credit Union to provide financial literacy education to schools and families in Arizona.

Through this partnership, Desert Financial Credit Union offers complimentary financial literacy courses and educational content through Gnosis IQ’s platform for students, teachers, schools and parents. These classes, programs and workshops are immediately available and accessible to equip families and schools with the essential skills to help children succeed.

“As a parent of three, I am very excited for Gnosis IQ to work with Desert Financial Credit Union to further support Arizona schools and its families,” said Gnosis IQ’s CEO, Ben Smith. “There is a lack of financial literacy education within our school system today that negatively impacts Arizona students. This partnership will not only fill that gap but will provide long-term benefits for children of all ages.”

Both organizations recognize the need within the community to help children, and their parents develop a further understanding of financial literacy. Important skills such as how to best manage your child’s finances and how to pay taxes are not currently taught in the classroom.

Desert Financial Credit Union is now able to help kids from kindergarten to high school through Gnosis IQ’s platform and its existing network with schools and educational institutions. This partnership allows both organizations to actively support educational innovation focused on academic achievement as well as overall student well-being. Through the integration of cutting-edge technology, Gnosis IQ continues to create tools that holistically benefit students.

“Desert Financial was founded in 1939 by 15 teachers as a credit union for educators. Initiatives like this allow us to support and further financial literacy and are of utmost importance to us,” says Jeff Meshey, CEO of Desert Financial. “As the father of four daughters who attended Arizona public schools, I couldn’t be prouder of this partnership with Gnosis that will allow us to provide financial education and well-being to students throughout Arizona and set them up for success from a young age.”
