Foundation for Financial Planning

 

 

WHAT WE DO:

The Foundation for Financial Planning (FFP) helps people take control of their financial lives by connecting the financial planning community with people in need. To achieve this mission, the FFP supports pro bono advice and financial life skills education by making grants to organizations that reach out to and extend the benefit of financial planning to those generally underserved by the market.

 

WHAT WE OFFER:

  • FFP partners with other non-profit organizations through grants that supports outreach programs to help provide financial life skills education targeted specifically to underserved populations or those in crisis. 
  • Grants are made at the sole discretion of the FFP, based on its evaluation of individual applications, its determination of relative priorities, and its availability of funds. The FFP reserves the right not to award any specific grant for any reason, or for no apparent reason, no matter how clearly the proposed project may seem to relate to FFP’s mission, and no matter how closely the requester has followed the guidelines and procedures.
  • FFP requires grantees to utilize volunteers from the financial planning and services community to help provide pro bono advice and financial life skills to underserved populations.
  • FFP assist non-profit organizations in connecting with volunteers from the financial services community.
  • Through materials utilized in past grant programs and other partnerships, FFP offers a library of “free” financial life skills resources for consumers through its website.  Information is available for non-profit organizations to utilize in helping provide financial life skills educational and counseling support to its constituencies.  All information may be viewed and downloaded.  Click here for access.  

 

WHAT WE NEED:

The FFP is governed by volunteers from the financial planning and financial services community.  For more than 27 years, FFP has made a strong commitment to help individuals take control of their financial lives by promoting and supporting financial life skills and pro bono advice to those generally not served by the market.  We are looking to build awareness of our initiatives and expand the reach and distribution of the use of pro bono financial planners and our resource materials.
