Funding the Future is a nonprofit organization that teaches teens vital financial principles by organizing live musical performances at schools across the nation and creating a dialogue around financial literacy between students and musicians. We can only achieve our goals with the assistance of generous donors and sponsors who care about the futures of our young people.
We believe all youth can learn critical financial skills,
define their future, and obtain professional and personal success.
Funding the Future teaches kids the importance of smart financial decisions, through live music, video, and an inspirational message shared by a musical celebrity. Participants learn basic tools to make informed life decisions and gain the discipline and confidence to see their own dreams as possibilities.
Our Vision is to teach financial literacy to every student in America. By teaching financial literacy to this next generation of leaders, these young adults will make smarter financial decisions leading to increased professional and personal success.
"The music and prestige of the band hooked the students from the beginning, so when the message was presented, they were attentive and excited. They enjoyed themselves and walked away with a better understanding of financial literacy and how it affects their lives."
— Christie Radford, Assistant Principal and Curriculum Testing Director, Goodard High School
