More About Us

Money Matter$, Inc (MMI) is a minority-owned, 501C(3) firm headquartered in Prince Georges County, Maryland, and has been actively providing its financial training, financial counseling, and financial advisory services since mid-2013.  These services include:

  • Financial Literacy Programs aimed at individuals and groups who wish to better understand financial matters to improve the quality of their lives;

  • Financial Advisory Services that focus on individuals (and couples) and are delivered principally through one-on-one counseling;

  • Financial Referral Services that recommend top-quality financial professionals — accountants, attorneys, bankers, tax professionals, and investment advisors — to those needing assistance with specific situations; and

  • Camp Millionaire, a fun-filled, interactive, innovative program for kids, teens, and adults that focuses on helping each group develop the skills needed to choose and create financial freedom.


MMI's basic philosophy is that everyone needs enhanced financial management education to develop the tools needed for financial independence and sound financial decision-making.  Further, MMI emphasizes that financial education can help equip citizens to acquire the foundational knowledge needed to carefully choose among the vast array of financial products and services available in today's marketplace.

Financial literacy is a topic Ms. Davis has cared about, studied-- both formally and informally, and lectured on since early in her financial management career.  She is particularly concerned about under-served populations — students, military families, jobless citizens, women, teenage parents, teens aging out of foster care, seniors, and the welfare-to-work population.  Her goal is to help prevent these groups, who represent some of our most vulnerable consumers, from making decisions that result in financially devastating consequences that may take years to recover from, if ever.
