Individuals and organizations around the globe have mobilized to tackle the financial illiteracy epidemic; yet most of them need financial education resources, support, and guidance to make a meaningful difference.
These passionate people leading programming have faced many obstacles. Starting a financial education program requires significant time, capital investment, and expertise. Once begun, making a program successful takes years of testing and refinement. And even after all this effort, the program may never achieve its set goals at a cost per impact that would allow the initiative to scale.
Our latest updates make it easier for individuals championing financial literacy programs to serve more people with high-quality financial education programming that delivers better results. How? By reducing the cost, time, and personnel required to build an effective, scalable financial education program.
We empower financial education champions with the systems, resources, and expertise that optimize financial literacy program development and reduce barriers to entry – lowering the cost per impact and increasing the ability for programs to scale.

Even today, there is limited information and few resources available, so we wanted to help others who share our passion by sharing these resources with other financial literacy champions. We feel nobody should have to experience the challenges we encountered when we started out, so we are committed to helping our patrons develop high-quality programs.
The NFEC is an IRS-recognized Benefit Corporation whose mission focuses on providing top-quality financial education programming. Our social impact-focused enterprise has supported the development of thousands of programs over the last decade to reduce the cost and time needed to develop programming while providing the tools and training that increase program impact. Our resources, training, and programming processes have been used by thousands of organizations, including:
