In Our Community


Our Founder and President, Darla Pellersels, RFC®, is always looking for ways to make an impact locally for the good of our community, for our children and our troops. 


Frustrated that there were no financial education programs readily available to our very young adults Darla created a program and volunteered her time each year to teach elementary school kids financial basics. Each lesson created by Darla was adapted for each grade level. Her topics included the Value Of Money, Budgeting and Saving, Wants vs Needs, Supply and Demand, Understanding the Difference between Stocks and Bonds, and Staying Out Of Debt. 

Darla understood that elementary age school children had an eagerness to learn about all aspects in life. Why not teach them the foundation of money. Darla has worked to change that one classs at a time. 


Darla comes from an Air Force family that is Red, White, and Blue, all the way through. So it is only natural that she would create Letters To Troops, a letter writing campaign for elementary school children to write a letter to someone serving our country oversees with the help of Operation Gratitude. Over the years Darla's efforts to give thanks to our military servicemen and women has sent tens of thousands of letters from Henderson and Las Vegas elementary school children to those across the world that truly deserve our thanks for all they do. 


Lets not forget about Darla providing FREE financial education classes monthly to those that seek it. Monthly classes are available for anyone with an interest in learning more about. Each class is designed to empower you to be able to make the important decisions you need to make with your money. Check out the events page to find the class for you.
