WHAT WE DO:
The Actuarial Foundation is the charitable arm of the actuarial profession, supporting youth education through the development and distribution of math curriculum materials to U.S. teachers with the goal of improving the mathematics performance and financial literacy of our nation’s students. Through individual and corporate contributions, and the volunteer spirit of actuaries, the Foundation curricula have reached more than two million students.
WHAT WE OFFER:
The Foundation offers teachers grades 3-12 unique, fun, hands-on, engaging mathematic and financial literacy programs to use as an enhancement or adjunct to their curriculum. All of these easy-to-implement materials have been developed with the teacher in mind.
Building Your Future is the Foundation’s most recent program and is an engaging, relevant financial literacy curriculum to help high school students master the foundational elements of personal finance and to prepare for life after high school.
Setting the Stage With Geometry helps students grades 6-8 build and reinforce basic geometry skills for measuring 2D and 3D shapes.

WHAT WE NEED:
The Foundation’s goal is to promote the availability of its math curriculum programs to every U.S. teacher. We seek strategic partners to help us reach out to teachers, provide them with our materials and expand our existing youth education programs or collaborate on new ones.
