Invest It Forward

Invest It Forward™ is an industry-wide financial education and capital markets literacy campaign convening hundreds of financial firms that are committed to giving young Americans a solid understanding of the capital markets system and the invaluable tools to achieve their dreams. Invest It Forward is designed to help young people understand how to harness the capital markets for their own benefit and realize their dreams.

Here's Why You Should Invest It Forward 
A host of nationwide policy makers are researching the need for programs like the SIFMA Foundation's. We're discovering that overall financial capability is making good strides and paving the way for the SIFMA Foundation to achieve even greater impact.  The SIFMA Foundation supports 15,000 educators and 600,000 students  grades 4 - 12 annually in their capital markets education journey.  Invest It Forward connects volunteers from industry firms who personally offer exciting, multimedia in-school and afterschool lessons to help our nation's youth better prepare for their own futures as financially capable and engaged citizens.
