Community Campaign Introduction
Financial problems have reached epidemic proportions in our country, a crisis that causes major problems at both the community and the national levels. Financial issues contribute to a variety of troubles many people face today, from crushing debt to retirement shortfalls. And the stress associated with financial issues can have devastating emotional impact. This epidemic hurts not only individuals, but the community as a whole.
Fortunately there is a solution to this problem. That solution is described in the National Financial Capability Strategy – a white paper that compiled research from more than 40 government organizations and scientific studies. The NFEC built its Community Campaign model around the solution and provided a turnkey system for people who seek to support the financial wellness of their communities.
Before the NFEC, comprehensive, evidence-based, financial education campaigns were only available for large companies with substantial budgets. Now organizations of any size can participate in the financial literacy movement. The NFEC levels the playing field for individuals and small- to mid-size businesses seeking to undertake a comprehensive financial education initiative.
The Community Campaign offers organizations and individuals the ability to bring high-profile national promotions to their communities. You can expand your reach and impact while the people you serve get a chance to pick up critical life skills. This managed turnkey system reduces the time, expense, and personnel required to launch a financial education program.
Limited Availability & Selection Process
The Community Campaign is currently available only in select areas. Category exclusivity is provided with preference given to our current Patrons. Applicants are selected based on performance criteria – the top on the list is a passion for promoting financial wellness.
Development Process and Big Picture Overview
National solution – over the past 8 years we have developed, tested, and refined material; developed a model for replication; and successfully replicated program outcomes.

Community Campaign Overview
The Campaign was designed to reduce the investment, personnel, and time required to develop an evidence-based financial education initiative. This package saves your organization years of time and development costs while positioning you as the advocate and leader who brought a national financial education program to your community.
By becoming a Patron, your organization will receive tremendous buzz, a deeper connection with your community, exposure to new customers, media exposure and goodwill. Additionally, you will be providing a valuable service to your fellow citizens – empowering people with practical financial skills that can positively impact their life and the lives of those in your community.
Before the NFEC, the benefits of a comprehensive financial literacy initiative were only available for large institutions with lots of investment dollars. Now they are available to all organizations with a desire to have lasting impact on the lives of their community members.
