About Us

HISTORY OF OUR ORGANIZATION

The Community Foundation for Financial Literacy was founded in 2008 and incorporated in 2009. Our goal is to build and maintain a unique delivery platform of financial literacy education for youth, young adults and their parents, while assisting them in asset building. Combining its resources with those of its collaborative partners, we also aim to become a resource for other nonprofit, professional and community organizations, both secular and faith based, by assisting them with delivering the much needed basic literacy concepts to their constituents, assisting with their financial capacity building and by delivering financial technical assistance that helps them achieve their goals.

OUR MISSION

The Foundation's mission is to create economic stability for typically under-represented students and their families by exposing them to educational, entrepreneurial and career opportunities, assisting with asset building and teaching them what it takes to be financially self-sufficient.
