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 dedicated to investor protection and market integrity through effective and efficient regulation of the securities industry. FINRA accomplishes its mission by writing and enforcing rules governing the activities of more than 4,100 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 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.
In addition to grantmaking, the FINRA Foundation operates a 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 our grants and initiatives, as well as the reach and distribution of our tested tools and resources.
