LifeCents Selected as 2020-2021 Moxie Award Finalist
Apr 7, 2021
Washington, D.C., April 7, 2021 – LifeCents, a financial wellness software company, today announced that the company was selected as a finalist for the 2020-2021 Moxie Award in the Financial Services category. The Moxie Award recognizes companies, non-profits and associations from the DC Metro Area for having demonstrated boldness and innovation as an integral part of their growth strategy.
LifeCents was recognized for the Moxie Award, in part, due to the company’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its efforts to help consumers navigate the many challenges that have threatened their financial security. Specifically, since March 2020, the Company has launched multiple financial wellness initiatives aimed at helping curb the impact of COVID-19 for some of our nation’s most vulnerable and underserved populations.
One example is a program developed in partnership with SAGE USA to provide the LGBT elder community with access to much needed resources to manage their finances during these uncertain times. This joint initiative and the positive impact it has had on this community have been featured in Forbes and Next Avenue publications (Help For The Money Anxieties Of Older LGBT Adults and Retirement Guide For LGBTQ Americans).
“We are honored to again be a finalist for the Moxie Award and to be recognized for our innovative and disruptive approach to creating better financial health outcomes for people” said Blake
Allison, Founder and CEO of LifeCents. “As devastating as COVID has been on the lives of so many people, it has helped to highlight the importance of providing all people with access to the education, programs, partners, and solutions they need to improve their financial capability. We will continue to seek opportunities and partnerships that help people establish the financial security they need today so that when they are faced with future economic challenges, they are well prepared and can avoid devastating financial setbacks. It is our version of a preventative medicine approach.”
Winners of the 2020-2021 Moxie Award will be announced at the Annual Moxie Award Ceremony and dinner on October 13, 2021. All finalists will be evaluated on their innovation, growth, industry leadership, community service and local achievements by a judging panel comprised of local business leaders.
