IFWA’s work begins by providing financial education and resources to people in the arts and entertainment industry.
Our curriculums, content, and services are specially designed to address every stage of an artist or arts professional’s financial life. Whether you’re just starting out, enjoying mid-career success, or if you’re an established artist looking to maximize assets and plan for retirement, our IFWA experienced coaches will guide you toward the right choices every step of the way.
IFWA has assembled a hand-selected team of esteemed financial professionals nationwide to serve those working in the arts industry. As soon as you contact us, IFWA will facilitate an initial consultation with an accredited compatible financial coach and then monitor your ongoing work together.
IFWA’s financial coaches have presented our marquee course, “The Introduction to Financial Wellness for Artists,” across the country to thousands of artists, arts professionals, and students planning careers in the arts. This dynamic one-hour session is designed to raise awareness about the importance of financial planning and demonstrate how it can improve your quality of life at any stage in your career. The course dispels any potential false beliefs and provides sound advice on how to achieve true financial well-being. It makes financial planning understandable and accessible by providing information and resources you can use to plan and implement a well-rounded financial plan tailored to your specific needs.
The IFWA Education Courses are now available online 24/7:

IFWA Alumni range from young arts professionals, working musicians, dancers, and rising Broadway stars to Grammy, Tony, and Oscar-winning superstars who all share one common belief: it's cool to be smart about money and to plan ahead, for ourselves and our families, with the goal of financial stability and wellness.
Our Alumni understand the importance of sharing their IFWA experience with other artists and arts professionals who would also benefit from feeling more knowledgeable and confident about their financial situations. As they’ve learned from taking charge of own financial lives, it doesn’t matter where you are in your career—it’s never too early or too late to begin the financial planning process. What’s critical is to engage an accredited, experienced, compassionate financial advisor like those on the IFWA team who continue to work with our esteemed alumni.
