The FINRA Foundation conducts research and undertakes programs directly to fill important gaps and meet the needs of underserved audiences. Through our Military Financial Readiness Project, we bring unbiased financial education to U.S. service members around the world, working closely with the Department of Defense and many nonprofit organizations that provide financial guidance to military families. As part of our Investor Protection Campaign, we collaborate with dedicated partners to help Americans detect fraud and learn how to step away when confronted by powerful persuasion tactics commonly used to commit fraudulent schemes. And we work with law enforcement and victim advocates to ensure those who have been harmed are connected with the appropriate resources to assist in their financial and emotional recovery. We give special emphasis to bridging research and practice to help Americans achieve their financial goals throughout life.
