“The number one problem in today’s generation and economy is the lack of financial literacy”
Why we exist
We believe financial sustainability is at risk.
Financial illiteracy, high debt levels, and low investment has compromised society’s ability to meet its financial and social obligations. The tear in the social and economic fabric must be repaired to ensure the financial health of the youth of today, and tomorrow.
With a combined 91 years in finance, investment and technology, we are determined to reverse this educational deficit. And by improving consumer financial discipline, we can develop a new generation of confident young investors.
The Information Revolution has provided the template and the technology.
The Invstr Foundation will deliver complete financial empowerment.
We believe that financial education is key to help people take control of their lives and create a more stable future for themselves and their families. By supporting teachers in financial education, we can help young people to become financially empowered.
“We are stealing from our children and grandchildren. We have over-borrowed, over-consumed and under-invested. We need to borrow less & save more, spend less & invest more.”
Our end goal: Increased Investment
Financial empowerment is an economic and social imperative.
WIDESPREAD FINANCIAL AWARENESS
LOWER COST OF CAPITAL
Teachers don’t feel comfortable teaching financial education
Educators need professional development for teaching financial education
Delivering complete empowerment
Financial education is something we can and should learn from a young age. Currently, it does not exist in many school curriculums. That’s because teachers themselves are ill-equipped to teach the subject to their students.
Invstr Foundation wants to give teachers the confidence and tools to teach financial education and empower all children.
Our Teachers Training program includes:
10 modules spanning 85 lessons designed to take novices on a journey to financial confidence
Ready-made classroom lesson formats, question and answer sets, sample homework and project assignments
Community & Forums
Teachers forum for additional support and collaboration, moderated by experts in financial education
Interested in supporting the development and distribution of the Teachers Training program?

Invstr Foundation also collaborates with other foundations and organizations to promote financial education and encourage young people to become financially independent.
