Press Release:

The CASH Campaign of Maryland promotes economic advancement for low-to-moderate income individuals and families in Baltimore and across Maryland.

Columbia, MD – Local Certified Financial Planner™ professional Nicholas Ibello, CFP®, AIF® of Williams Asset Management has joined the CASH Campaign of Maryland’s Pro-Bono Financial Planning Program. The CASH Campaign of Maryland (Creating Assets, Savings and Hope) is a nonprofit organization that accomplishes its mission through operating a portfolio of direct service programs, building organizational and field capacity, and leading policy and advocacy initiatives to strengthen family economic stability.


The new Pro-Bono Financial Planning Program, funded by the Foundation for Financial Planning, has been specifically designed to provide support to participant’s working to reach a financial goal. Working individually with participants, volunteers of the CASH Campaign empower them to achieve personal financial goals such as eliminating debt, buying a home, investing, or saving for retirement.


“I am very excited to join an organization that works hard every day to provide access to quality financial planning guidance and coaching,” says Ibello. “This is a wonderful opportunity to leverage my expertise in order to give back to those who need financial planning most, but may not have access to it.”


“We are very pleased to have Nick Ibello as one of our volunteer advisors,” said Co-Founder and COO Sara Johnson. “There has been strong demand for this high quality financial planning, and having engaged advisors like Nick to work one-on-one with participants is critical to our ability to achieve impact. Many of our clients have been working with a financial coach, but to get to the next level, they need the expertise and real-life experience that only a CFP® professional can provide.”
