Remember the AFSA Education Foundation in Your Year-End Giving

As a key AFSA stakeholder you know firsthand the value of the organization. Thirty years ago AFSA leaders like you stepped up believing an informed consumer is a good consumer and the AFSA Education Foundation was born! The Foundation’s primary focus is educating students through the online curriculum, MoneySKILL. To date over one million students have been able to improve their personal finance skills by completing up to 37 modules.

During 2020 the AFSA Education Foundation celebrated the organization’s 30th anniversary, and to make the occasion, please consider a year-end donation of $30, $300, $3,000, or even $30,000. You can donate here and help us continue the great work of the foundation for many years to come.

We know there is one common thing about AFSA members; you are generous and believe in both supporting our industry and our customers. Thanks to many of you, the Foundation now has a healthy endowment. Our year-end goal is to raise $150,000 in donations by December 31. With the unique year we have had, we know it is not uncommon to have unused budget items and we can think of no better way to use these funds than a gift to the AFSA Education Foundation.

In this year’s MoneySKILL instructor survey one response stood out: 100% of respondents told us that they would use MoneySKILL again, a resounding testimony to its effectiveness. One instructor commented, MoneySKILL is the best program out there, period!

As company leaders, we all have different resources and priorities but there is one common element on which we can agree—educating students and providing teachers with MoneySKILL at no cost to them is a proven way to provide youth and adults with the knowledge they need to make sound financial decisions.

With the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, we are grateful for your leadership and ask you to join us in donating in honor of AFSA leaders who care about financial education. We can think of no better way to honor you and help make a difference through the power of financial education.
