Together, we can make it happen!

Remember what it felt like when you didn't know how money worked? Well, millions of high school students graduate every year without learning basic money skills and end up living paycheck to paycheck.

We created the Foundations in Personal Finance curriculum so students can learn the right way to handle money before they graduate. By sponsoring a school, you’ll get our Foundations in Personal Finance curriculum in the hands of teachers in your community—and help prevent students from making the same money mistakes we all made.
