Funding Behind the Free


Since 1984 the National Endowment for Financial Education® (NEFE®) has proudly provided 100 percent of the funding for the High School Financial Planning Program® (HSFPP), a high quality, noncommercial, and unbiased personal finance curriculum.

NEFE is independently funded by its own endowment, which was established with the proceeds from the sale of the College for Financial Planning and related transactions in 1997. Additional growth is realized only through investment of the endowment's assets.

The Latte Factor: Spread the Message Without the Shame


Recently, the latte factor has been criticized for seeming to shame people about their daily habits, or to insinuate that someone who struggles financially would be well-off if only they gave up their daily coffee.  The concept, however, if taught properly can be an educational tool to empower students, not to shame them. Understanding how small expenses can add up to real savings over time encourages students to make mindful daily decisions and to see that that many of their financial goals are within their control.
