Finra Investor Education Foundation
FINRA is the acronym for the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. The Foundation has launched its fifth general grant program. The Foundationís mission is to provide Americans with the knowledge, skills, and tools necessary for financial success. The Foundation is interested in funding projects that will reach and actively engage at-risk audiences such as seniors and first-time investors with the goal of offering them access to unbiased information about the markets and fundamental financial issues. For 2009, the Foundation is interested in projects that focus on using behavioral finance to improve saving and investing, meeting the financial and investor education needs of underserved audiences, new marketing and distribution channels for financial and investor education, and helping Americans manage their finances in retirement. Priority is given to projects reaching and engaging a well-defined target audience and those that encourage collaboration and strategic partnerships that facilitate effective marketing and distribution efforts. Successful education projects will have measurable impact and reach large audiences in a cost-effective manner. Preference will be given to projects that can be replicated and sustained beyond the term of grant funding. The deadline is for 3-page project concept forms. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
