Making the heartbeat of the
Community Stronger

Since its inception in 1997,

VestedIn (formerly West Philadelphia Financial Services Institution) has been referred to as the “economic engine” of the community. First serving West Philadelphia’s Empowerment Zone and now serving six additional counties in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, VestedIn believes in uplifting the three components that are at the heart of every neighborhood:


Breaking Cycles…Building Wealth

Our mission is to facilitate empowerment and wealth building through investment in communities. VestedIn takes the moving parts of our community and converts that power into tangible actions that propels motion that lasts for generations.
Our values are rooted in Ideas, Inclusion, Fairness, Transparency, Independence, Perseverance, and Opportunity.
We are the economic engine that will create urban communities that are vibrant, diverse and flourishing environments where wealth and economic opportunity is accessible.

Creating change that combats the systemic issues of poverty

A young couple from West Philly get married and have a daughter. No one in their family has ever attended college and they are determined that she will be the first member to do so, but since neither of them has gone to college, they are unable to equip their daughter with tools necessary to ensure that she will be a viable candidate for college.
Each of us, regardless of age, can invoke change that can remove the stigma and effects of poverty in our neighborhoods.
For 13 years VestedIn has empowered the youngest residents of Philadelphia through WesGold Fellows. WesGold Fellows is a vigorous 8-week paid summer internship program. Starting at 15 and now reaching up to 60 students, our fellows are guided through curriculum-based instruction, experiential learning opportunities, uniquely engaging field trips, and professional development training that provides invaluable skills they need to make wise decisions and the tools to develop a plan for success and execution.
