Creating a Legacy of Service

Did you know that the High School Financial Planning Program® (HSFPP) existed before the National Endowment for Financial Education® (NEFE®)? HSFPP began as part of the College for Financial Planning in 1984.

The college was a Denver-based nonprofit organization that served as the nation's first financial-planning education institution. As the College grew, diversified, and advanced its interaction with the public, its trustees and management recognized a critical need for ongoing educational efforts that could provide reliable, impartial financial information to consumers, particularly the underserved. To meet that need, the trustees created the National Endowment.
