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.

For nearly four decades, we have dedicated our self to the public good. We began with the NEFE High School Financial Planning Program® (HSFPP) and have since built numerous programs for consumers based on research and our expertise. All NEFE resources are available at no cost.

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.

NEFE’s legacy of service continues through our unwavering commitment to providing financial education and real-world information to people at all societal levels. It is our strong conviction that, through an increased understanding of personal financial issues, all Americans can enjoy better, more secure and more satisfying lives.
