Partners in sound financial education

Each year, we partner with more than 111 schools and community-based organizations to plant the seeds that help teens establish a strong financial foundation. We are always looking for educators, schools and community leaders who share our vision of empowering teens with personal finance skills.

Find out how our free, flexible and successful financial literacy lessons fit with your curriculum and students: email our Program Manager, Patrick Armstrong, or call (414) 310-5918.

Educators share the impact of our programs

(Note: SecureFutures was formerly known as Make A Difference – Wisconsin.)

“You can never underestimate the power of a single action. Our future really is now, right in front of us, in how [students] are sharing their experiences with their families.”
-Dr. Darienne Driver, MPS Superintendent, on results from our programs
