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 capability.
FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, is the largest independent regulator of securities firms doing business with the public in the United States. Our core mission is to pursue investor protection and market integrity, and we carry it out by overseeing virtually every aspect of the securities industry. We oversee more than 4,000 brokerage firms, nearly 162,000 branch offices and more than 638,000 registered securities representatives.
WHAT WE OFFER
The FINRA Foundation supports and undertakes research and educational projects to protect investors and improve financial capability in the United States.
Our grants build community capacity to provide reliable, readily available financial education for all who need it. FINRA Foundation grants also enable researchers to explore investor behavior and develop practical ways to avoid costly mistakes and prepare for the future. You can learn more about our funding opportunities and the projects supported by our grants at FINRAFoundation.org.
The FINRA Foundation operates a leading national initiative to help Americans understand and avoid financial fraud, as well as a global effort to enable military members to make prudent saving and investing decisions for themselves and their families. You can learn more about these targeted initiatives at SaveAndInvest.org.
All of this work is informed by the FINRA Foundation’s National Financial Capability Study. This ongoing research effort examines key indicators of financial capability and evaluates how these indicators vary with underlying demographic, behavioral, attitudinal, and financial literacy characteristics over time. Data and analysis from the study are available at USFinancialCapability.org.
WHAT WE NEED
We are looking to expand awareness of the many educational tools, training opportunities, and research studies supported by the FINRA Foundation.
