About heading

We're redefining financial education.

The National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) champions effective financial education. We are the independent, centralizing voice providing leadership, research and collaboration to advance financial well-being. As one of the first organizations to wholly dedicate its efforts on improving the effectiveness of financial education, we continue our legacy of strengthening action-oriented research agendas, mobilizing intermediaries, and creating better solutions for researchers, educators, practitioners and policymakers.

We have dedicated ourselves to the public good since our founding in 1984. We began with the development of the NEFE High School Financial Planning Program® (HSFPP) and followed it with additional programs – all at no cost to learners. While we no longer offer educational resources, we are committed to furthering the field of financial well-being.

Collaboration leads to change.

To understand and meet the changing financial education needs of all Americans, NEFE joins forces with thought leaders across the country and worldwide to help improve financial well-being. We facilitate rigorous financial literacy and behavioral research, convene experts on various personal finance topics, and comment and engage in national public policy efforts.
