The FINRA Investor Education Foundation's report highlights 10 years of support for financial education and 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.
SaveAndInvest.org, a project of the FINRA Investor Education Foundation, is a free, unbiased resource dedicated to your financial health. 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.
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. The Foundation’s Military Financial Readiness Project has a Department of Defense Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and holds a USCG Qualified Organization Designation. Learn more about:
Investor Protection Campaign
This research-based campaign is intended to help investors understand how they might be susceptible to investment fraud and to replace risky investment behaviors with fraud detection and prevention behaviors. It also identifies the common persuasion techniques fraudsters use and encourages all investors to ask questions and check information. In support of this campaign, the FINRA Foundation employs a variety of strategic national, state and grassroots partnerships to develop and distribute fraud prevention resources and conduct outreach.
