The Foundation for Financial Education
The Foundation for Financial Education is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing free educational resources to the public. Founded in 2009 as a result of an urgent need to eliminate financial illiteracy, F3E has helped thousands of individuals become more fiscally fit by understanding financial pitfalls that they may encounter in their everyday lives. Local industry experts contribute their time and expertise to conduct, financial workshops to companies, churches, municipalities, and non-profit organizations at no cost. F3E workshops are considered to be informative, entertaining and educational.
The host organization benefits from these seminars, by creating goodwill and strengthening morale amongst its employees. The participants benefit from the knowledge they gain and the financial experts benefit by having the opportunity to give something back to the community in which they serve. While the workshop presenters are businessmen and businesswomen, F3E workshops are not sales events. The purpose of the workshops is to provide valuable financial information to the participants that attend, and no specific products or companies are endorsed.
Over the past few years, F3E has served organizations such as The Alzheimer’s Association, Johns Hopkins University, The Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Union, and many more. F3E has also been responsible for providing educational resources to state and federal government employees at agencies such as NOAA, IHS, SAMHSA, FDA, NIH, OPM, and more. F3E is also currently participating in the series of retirement seminars promoted by Federal Agencies.
