WHAT WE DO:
Lightbulb Press is a financial education content developer. Founded twenty years ago, Lightbulb creates financial literacy guides, online learning centers, and interactive games that teach about investing and personal finance in an engaging, practical, and memorable way.
WHAT WE OFFER:
Our educational resources are tailored to speak directly and effectively to specific age groups and audiences. Lightbulb offers more than thirty guides and booklets that address a comprehensive range of topics in personal finance, financial planning, and investing. All of the content is also available in several digital formats, including online articles and learning centers, as well as in versions to be read as hand-held applications.
All of the content can be customized to be used by financial services organizations in their educational outreach initiatives.
WHAT WE NEED:
Lightbulb would like to work with a sponsoring organization to develop a young person's guide to money and investing, which could be made available as a print guide for distribution in schools and through other channels, as well as online and through social networking media.
One of this year's projects was the creation, for The National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE), of a series of self-assessment quizzes to enhance its Cash Coursep Program, a free online financial education resource designed for college students and recent graduates. The quizzes are designed to stimulate interest in financial topics, provide students with a tangible way to gauge their knowledge, and encourage colleges to participate in this important and timely program.
It's Your Financial Life is one of Lightbulb's newest publications. An engaging easy-to-understand short guide written to appeal to teens and young adults, it covers topics including banking, using credit wisely, and starting to invest.
A Salute to Smart Investing, created with support from Don Blandin and the Investor Protection Trust and in collaboration with Debora Whipple and the New Jersey Bureau of Securities, was written for members of the military and their families. Available in both English and Spanish, the booklet has been warmly welcomed by servicemen and women across the country and overseas. The booklet addresses topics such as investing basics and avoiding scams that target the military.
