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.

Financial Education Gives Teens the Confidence to Control their Future


by HSFPP guest blogger Shivam Patel, Bay Area high school sophomore My friends and I often find ourselves with lots of questions relating to personal finance, but no one to turn to. High schools don’t always have financial education courses and often leave their students wandering in the dark. As a consequence, my peers and I are left with unanswered questions and anxiety over our future.

Get Smart About Money with NEFE's Self-Paced Online Courses


Research shows that financial education in schools is most effective when led by teachers properly trained in personal finance itself, not just in pedagogy. Whether you are just looking for a refresher in money basics or want to improve your own financial health, NEFE’s Smart About Money (SAM) offers free online courses to take at your own pace, on your own time.
