On October 28, SIFMA and the SIFMA Foundation gathered together industry members and advocates of financial education at the SIFMA Foundation’s 2015 Tribute Dinner: Invested In Our Financial Future. Helping young people become financially capable will ensure that they are well prepared to make informed financial decisions throughout their life and provide a foundation for the youth of today to be vital contributors to our society and economy tomorrow.
Since 1977, the SIFMA Foundation's financial education programs have enabled nearly 16 million students better understand the capital markets, improve their saving and investing habits, and raise their standardized test scores in mathematics and economics, preparing them for college and career success.
We encourage you to continue to show your support and stay involved with the SIFMA Foundation. Help transform a student's financial future!
