    BAINBRIDGE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION PRESENTS: GREAT FINANCIAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS
    Two Funds for Life: April 18 at 7 p.m.; The Tricks and Traps of Estate Planning April 25 at 7p.m. All presentations take place at the Bainbridge Public Library. Free. While young investors may lack funds, they’re rich in an asset more precious still: time. Older investors, meanwhile, probably have more money to put into the market to offset their shorter window for return. For both groups – and the broad swath of investors who find themselves somewhere in between – there are plenty of proven strategies for wealth creation and retirement planning. Bainbridge Community Foundation is presenting a Spring Financial Education Lecture Series in April, hosted at the Bainbridge Public Library. The series was developed to make individual financial and donor education resources readily available to all islanders.
