WHAT WE OFFER
WHAT WE NEED
For 40 years, the SIFMA Foundation has provided programming that engages 4th-12thgrade students in learning about the capital markets and their role in the maintaining the welfare of the economy, while simultaneously helping them see the real-world application of the math, English, and other academic content they learn in the classroom. The SIFMA Foundation is seeking teachers who share the belief “financial capability empowers us as citizens of a democracy. It allows us to better participate in critical policy debates that will shape our future for decades to come,” which John W. Rogers, chairman of the President's Advisory Council wrote in a 2015 youth financial capability report.
We encourage you to build students’ financial skills through the programs we offer. To find out which programs are right for your community, classroom or company, visitwww.sifma.org/foundation.
