WHAT WE DO:
The FINRA Investor Education Foundation provides underserved Americans with the knowledge, skills and tools necessary for financial success throughout life. We envision a society characterized by universal financial literacy.
FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, is an independent, not-for-profit organization with a public mission: to protect America's investors by making sure the securities industry operates fairly and honestly. FINRA does this by writing and enforcing rules governing the activities of nearly 4,700 brokerage firms with approximately 633,000 brokers; examining firms for compliance with those rules; fostering market transparency; and, educating investors.
WHAT WE OFFER:
The FINRA Foundation supports innovative research and educational projects aimed at segments of the investing public that could benefit from additional resources.
Our grants allow researchers to explore investor behavior and develop practical ways to avoid costly mistakes and prepare for the future. Grant funding also helps nonprofit organizations ensure that reliable financial and investor education is available to all who need it, when they need it—at the workplace, online 24/7, or wherever it’s most effective. You can learn more about grants and other projects at FINRAFoundation.org.
By sharing research and tools broadly, the FINRA Foundation adds to the collective wisdom about how best to help investors. Such information also shapes our direct programming.When we work on behalf of military service members and their families, with older Americans nearing or in retirement, or with students, we have the opportunity to apply the latest research and adapt innovative strategies to their circumstances and needs. You can learn more about these targeted initiatives at SaveAndInvest.org.
WHAT WE NEED:
We are looking to build more awareness of our initiatives and expand the reach and distribution of our tested tools and resources.
