Investor Protection Campaign

The FINRA Foundation’s research-based campaign to protect investors helps them recognize that anyone with savings could be targeted by a fraud criminal. The campaign identifies the common persuasion techniques fraudsters use and encourages all investors to ask questions and check information. In collaboration with Better Business Bureaus, AARP, the Securities and Exchange Commission and many others, the Foundation alerts investors to the red fags of investment fraud and empowers consumers to become fraud fighters.

Population(s) Served

The FINRA Foundation’s Military Financial Readiness Project delivers free, unbiased financial education tools and training to service members and their spouses through a variety of programs and public awareness initiatives. In collaboration with the U.S. Department of Defense Financial Readiness Campaign, the project’s primary goal is to help military families manage their money with confidence.

Population(s) Served

The FINRA Foundation’s Financial Wellness at Work project—administered in collaboration with United Way Worldwide—helps nonprofits in the community provide workplace financial wellness services for lower-income employees. Onsite financial education, confidential one-on-one help with financial challenges, and access to safe and affordable financial products equip Americans with the tools to build a better financial life, both now and in the future. And employers are learning that financially stable workers are more productive workers.

Population(s) Served

Since 2007, the FINRA Foundation and the American Library Association have helped more than 1,000 public libraries meet the financial education needs of library patrons in communities across the country.
