Going to college
Buying a car
"I have been working with FTF for a couple of years now and it's been one of the most wonderful things I have ever been a part of. I think the work that Funding the Future is doing is so important because we are going into schools, we are going into communities and we are talking to young people about financial literacy."

"It was the best assembly/presentation I have seen in my 34 years as a teacher/ administrator. The band was awesome, the short presentation was simplified, on point, and I'm sure the students and many of the adults learned a quick lesson on saving money and credit scores."
