WHAT IS FINANCIAL LITERACY FOR ALL?

Financial Literacy for All (FL4A) is a national initiative to embed financial literacy into American culture.

Led by a prominent group of leaders from the business, sports, entertainment and nonprofit sectors, our mission reflects this truth: financial literacy must be the cornerstone of any effort to disrupt poverty, alleviate financial struggle, and help everyone seeking to reach their financial capability and realize financial security.

Over the next ten years, through a series of programs and awareness campaigns, we will begin to reshape, rethink, and reimagine the way we think about our relationship with money.

 

WHY FINANCIAL LITERACY?

“Financial Literacy is the Civil Rights Issue of this Generation.”

Operation HOPE Founder, Chairman, and CEO John Hope Bryant

Financial literacy empowers all of us to make smart decisions – how to budget, save, borrow, and invest. To afford our daily lives, plan our financial futures, and navigate our financial challenges. To ensure greater wellbeing and secure our families. Lack of financial knowledge creates barriers to fully participate in the economy, and in turn, the American Dream.
