      The San Francisco Office of Financial Empowerment (OFE) is partnering with the Impact Hub
      San Francisco and the Mayor’s Office of Civic Innovation (MOCI) to host the Smart Money
      Hackathon and Tech Clinic.

      Developers, designers, marketers, community members and makers of all kinds are invited to
      participate in a weekend hackathon to build capacity for our financial empowerment non­profit and
      public organizations.

      The following organizations and programs will present key capacity challenges and opportunities for
      innovation.
      ●    Consumer Credit Counseling Services of San Francisco: Comprehensive financial counseling and
      education for thousands of consumers locally and nationally
      ●    CurrenC SF: Employer campaign to promote safe and electronic pay transfers
      ●    Kindergarten to College: Automatic college savings account program in SFUSD
      ●    MEDA: Financial asset development for SF low and moderate income Latino families
      ●    Mission SF: Incentivized youth savings and financial awareness and advocacy
      ●    SF Smart Money Network: One­stop hub for all SF financial education resources


      As part of the Mayor’s Office of Civic Innovation Tech Clinics initiative, project teams will
      commit 40 hours after the weekend to complete their new services, products and tools that build the
      capacity of community initiatives. These teams will have the chance to work closely with their
      nonprofit and civic partner, and then present their finished product at the following Tech Clinic.

      Join the SF Office of Financial Empowerment, the Mayor’s Office of Civic Innovation and Impact Hub
      SF for a weekend Smart Money hackathon. Help our SF financial empowerment non­profit and public
      organizations tackle key challenges and build capacity.
