$1M in grants to launch personal finance electives

With FREE, world-class Curriculum, Teacher PD, and Advocacy support, the NGPF community has removed many of the barriers to establishing a new personal finance elective. You have the power (and now a monetary incentive for your school) to make it happen!

Energize your school to launch a new standalone personal finance elective course during or after the 2021-2022 school year, and NGPF will issue your school a $1,000 grant for implementation! 


Unless we act now...

1 million students

will graduate high school by 2025 without ever having the option to take a personal finance course in school.
