Let’s Raise Some Elle.

By Ellevest Team

Truth: When women come together, magic happens. Things get done, and the world becomes a better place because of it. (See: The Women’s March, the #MeToo reckoning, the 2018 midterms, and the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund — just to name a few.)

Let’s Raise Some Elle

Another truth: Women+ won’t be fully equal with men until we’re financially equal — because in a capitalist society like this one, money equals power. We believe that it’s by coming together, having conversations, taking action, and raising Elle that we can begin to take back that power.

Elle Raisers. Cool name. What does it mean?

Elle Raisers are a community of people committed to making the world a better, more equal place by getting more money into the hands of more women+ — because when that happens, everyone benefits. You might also call them financial feminists (we do).

Elle Raisers know that lifting ourselves and our friends up financially — aka raise Elle — works better than trying to DIY our individual success. (Bonus: It’s more fun, too.)

How do I become an Elle Raiser?

It’s easy. Just raise some Elle.

No action is too small — talk to your friends about money, go negotiate for a raise, start saving and / or investing, refer a friend (or two — that’s the magic number to become an Elle Raisers Ambassador) to Ellevest, send that funny meme to your bff. You’re probably already doing a lot of this stuff … and that’s all it takes to become an Elle Raiser. If this sounds like you, you’re in.

Tell me about this Elle Raisers Ambassador thing.

Elle Raisers Ambassadors are Elle Raisers who have successfully referred two friends to Ellevest. The title “ambassador” tells the world about the leadership role they’ve taken in the Elle Raiser community: talking the talk, walking the walk by bringing their friends, family, colleagues — fill in the blank — into the movement.

Referring people counts as raising Elle because it literally gives you and your friends a financial boost. With the Refer a Friend program for Ellevest clients, when a friend you refer starts investing with Ellevest, we’ll give you $20 to invest toward your own future … and your friend gets $20, too.*

On top of the $20 per friend who makes a deposit to Ellevest, Elle Raiser ambassadors also get special access to cool stuff, like exclusive Q&As, and some gorgeous treats, like Ellevest swag.

How do I become an Elle Raisers Ambassador?

Step 1: Become an Ellevest client. (No minimum to get started, btw, because we want to get as many women+ invested as possible.)

Step 2: Refer two friends, who become funded Ellevest clients. (Did we mention the no-minimum-to-get-started thing?)

Congratulations! You’re now an Elle Raisers Ambassador.

Step 3: Refer more friends, because you know how important this is: Friends don’t let friends retire with only two-thirds the money that men have because they waited too long to start investing.

Step 4: Enjoy your bennies.

But seriously ...

The world is a better place when women+ have more power and get in financial control. That’s what we’re all about at Ellevest.

Also: World domination is more fun when we do it with our besties. So let’s raise some Elle.

Clients who refer others to Ellevest’s Refer a Friend program agree to serve as solicitors to the program and provide the email contact of individuals who would be happy to receive such information. As of May 29, 2019, when a referred client enrolls in Ellevest and funds their account as a result of the referral, the referrer and the referred client will be paid $20, added either to their highest-priority goal in their Ellevest account or a $20 Amazon gift card if a retirement account. Ellevest’s processing time for depositing $20 into a client’s Ellevest account or delivery of an Amazon gift card may be up to 90 days.

Your highest-priority goal must be funded before we process the credit to qualify for the $20, and must stay funded throughout the 90 days while we process the referral credit.

Ellevest reserves the right to change, at any time, the amount paid to you for referring a client, or withhold payment of compensation to you if it determines the referral was made under wrongful or fraudulent circumstances, that your participation is against the spirit of the program, that making payment would constitute a violation of your Ellevest Client Agreement or applicable federal or state law, or that incomplete or inaccurate information was provided. Examples of incomplete or inaccurate information include, but are not limited to, incorrect personal information (such as an address or Social Security number) or incorrect bank link.

At Ellevest, our primary goal is to help women take control of their financial future through investing. In order to do this, helping our community become investors and encouraging them to overcome money taboos and share the benefits of investing is essential, and that is the spirit behind our Refer a Friend program.

We believe it is against this spirit to promote the program to third parties for any purposes other than encouraging them to become investors with Ellevest. For example, it is not intended for people whose primary motivation is to collect signup or referral bonuses.

How many friends can you invite? All of them! But you’ll only be compensated for up to 20 friends who fund their accounts in each calendar year.
