Who We Are. What We Do. Why It Matters.
Established in 2003 by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the FINRA Investor Education Foundation empowers underserved Americans with the knowledge, skills, and tools to make sound financial decisions throughout life.
The Foundation accomplishes this mission through educational programs and research that help consumers achieve their financial goals and that protect them in a complex and dynamic world.
FINRA is a government-authorized not-for-profit organization that oversees all securities broker-dealers in the U.S. FINRA is dedicated to investor protection and market integrity.
What We Offer:
The FINRA Foundation helps Americans build financial stability, invest for life goals and guard against fraud. The Foundation builds capacity and nurtures supportive networks that stand ready and well equipped to guide Americans through life’s financial decisions and challenges. This includes empowering fraud fighters at the community level, building the capacity of public libraries to help patrons learn about money and achieve financial goals, fostering financial wellness programs in the workplace, and strengthening the ranks of military financial educators. Moreover, the FINRA Foundation serves as a repository for data and research describing the financial capability of American households to help decision-makers and practitioners advance financial well-being in communities nationwide. Learn more about the people we help, the networks we strengthen and the knowledge we share by visiting the FINRA Foundation’s website.
