NEFE Resources for Financial Education Programs

If you are ineligible for NEFE funding or aren’t quite ready to apply, we invite you to explore NEFE’s resource offerings. Our grantmaking dollars are limited, but there’s a good chance we can provide in-kind support through our evaluation tools, educational content and resources, and data from completed research initiatives.

Evaluation Toolkit logo


NEFE’s Financial Education Evaluation Toolkit is a free, online resource that guides you through the design of an effective evaluation strategy and lets you choose from a database of more than 800 questions when you are ready to design your assessments. The toolkit makes it easy to demonstrate learning and show the value of your personal finance curriculum or program.

NEFE has free resources to use with community members, college students and high school students.

  • NEFE’s High School Financial Planning Program (HSFPP) is designed for classroom use in middle and high schools. NEFE’s award-winning flagship program has been independently evaluated and contains resources for teachers, parents and students.
