We are a 501(c)(3) tax exempt nonprofit whose mission is to use our financial guide and presentations to educate students about the basics of financial literacy. Our goal is to give out 1,000,000 copies of our financial guide, Adulting 101: A Guide to Personal Finance, over the next 5 years. Through our donations and fundraising, we will cover the distribution and production costs of the books so that we can give them to students free of charge.
Through our research, we found that the average score on a financial literacy test taken by teens and young adults was a disappointing 58%. We are here to change that statistic. Our hope is that students will use our presentations and books to learn the basics of personal finance that will eventually lead to lifelong financial stability.
