Through easy-to-use tools and resources, SaveAndInvest.org helps you make informed financial decisions—and arms you with the information you need to protect yourself from investment fraud.

Using fine money levied by FINRA against firms for misleading sales practices targeting military personnel, the FINRA Foundation first launched SaveAndInvest.org in 2006 as part of our Military Financial Readiness Project. In 2008, we expanded the site to include information about fraud prevention for all investors.

Reach, Educate, Protect

Reach, Educate, Protect

The FINRA Foundation's new report highlights 10 years of support for financial education & research in all parts of the country. During this period, we've benchmarked Americans' financial knowledge and skills, helped investors avoid financial fraud and ensured that millions of young people are prepared for adult financial decisions. These accomplishments are made possible by our dedicated grantees and project partners—people and organizations committed to building bridges between communities and the resources and financial education they need and want.

We're proud of the decade of accomplishments detailed in this report and excited by what the future holds.

Military Financial Readiness Project

Financial preparedness is a key component of military readiness. Whether on-base or deployed overseas, it is crucial that military personnel have access to financial education information that will enable them to make prudent saving and investing decisions for themselves and their families.

Investor Protection
Campaign

This research-based campaign seeks to protect older investors by helping them recognize that anyone with savings could be targeted by a con. It also identifies the common persuasion techniques fraudsters use and encourages all investors to ask questions and check information.

About the FINRA Investor Education Foundation

The FINRA Investor Education Foundation supports innovative research and educational projects that give underserved Americans the knowledge, skills and tools necessary for financial success throughout life.

Formerly known as the NASD Investor Education Foundation, the FINRA Investor Education Foundation is a nonprofit, 501(c)(4) organization established in December 2003 in response to both the current environment in the markets and a survey showing that investors still have fundamental questions and misunderstandings about important investment issues. In 2007, the Foundation's parent, NASD, consolidated with NYSE Member Regulation to form FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. At that time, the NASD Investor Education Foundation became the FINRA Investor Education Foundation—but its mission of serving investors remains the same.

FINRA and the FINRA Investor Education Foundation do not sell investment products, promote products or firms, or offer specific investment advice. For more information about the Foundation, please visit www.finrafoundation.org.
