Real Money Moves launched as a national initiative to help move money out of the private prison industry (with much success). Today, we are an educational, 501©3 initiative, offering athletes, actors, and other cultural influencers a new way to build more holistic legacies. We assist in ethical wealth creation, using the power of impact investing to addresses both financial and social objectives.

Our partners lend their platforms to support campaigns at the intersection of money and justice, and explore investment opportunities to align their money with their values.

RMM benefits from its sister relationship to Candide Group, a social investing firm that directs capital away from an extractive global economy towards investments dedicated to social justice and sustainability. Candide has a team with over 30 years of collective impact investing experience, and teaches everywhere from Harvard Business School to the United Nations.


Candide Group founding partner Morgan Simon, who is leading this initiative, has close to two decades of experience making finance a tool for social justice. In that time she has influenced over $150B and is a regularly sought out expert on impact investing. Her book, Real Impact: The New Economics of Social Change has been featured everywhere from Harvard Business School to the United Nations. She is a regular voice in media, active investor, and lifetime activist. You can stay up to date on all things Real Money Moves by following Morgan on your favorite socials.
