Capacity Building Scholarships

Is your organization passionate about helping people with their money so they can improve their lives? Apply for a scholarship!

The AFCPE Strategic Impact Fund has allocated up to $100,000 in 2022 to provide capacity building scholarships to community-based organizations focused on bridging gaps of inequality with the highest standards of financial counseling and education.

AFCPE certification and training programs will equip your employees with the knowledge and skills to build confidence, increase organizational capacity, and create lasting impact in the lives of those you serve.

  • Add financial education to services provided for people who are incarcerated or transitioning from the prison system.
  • Start a financial wellness department within your nonprofit.
  • Elevate the level of knowledge, skill, professionalism for current financial counseling/education services.
