SIFMA Foundation Tribute Dinner

SIFMA Foundation Tribute Dinner


Following SIFMA's Annual Meeting on November 10, the SIFMA Foundation hosted the 2014 SIFMA Foundation Tribute Dinner. This year's dinner, Invested in Financial Capability, recognized the outstanding contributions of our honorees to financial capability efforts across the country. Our honorees and special guest speaker exemplify the commitment to helping our youth achieve their full potential.

Thanks to our supporters, each of our award-winning programs enjoyed a record-breaking year in 2014 and we were pleased to launch our new Invest It Forward™ national volunteer initiative:

  • The Stock Market Game™: SMG went mobile in 2014 with iPhone, Android, and iPad apps, the first ever summer SMG competition, and an exciting increase overall in student, teacher, and school participation.
  • Capitol Hill Challenge™: For the first time, matched 100% of Members of Congress to schools competing in the Stock Market Game Capitol Hill Challenge in all congressional districts.
  • InvestWrite®: In its 10th anniversary year, recruited 3,300 industry professionals as volunteer judges - the highest number ever-and received 17,000 student essays.
  • Invest It Forward™: Industry-wide capital markets literacy campaign launched in April 2014 resulted in thousands of volunteers from hundreds of firms contributing tens of thousands of service hours to help students, teachers and communities better understand the capital mark
