DoughMain Financial Literacy Foundation

DoughMain Financial Literacy Foundation

DoughMain Financial Literacy Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to building a better tomorrow by educating students today, in order to forge a financially literate America.

Adam West

Why We Support Them:

The U.S. education system tends to not put a heavy focus on financial literacy, so we love that DoughMain is committed to empowering schools and educators to deliver well-developed financial curriculums.

Operation HOPE

Operation HOPE

Operation HOPE is a for-purpose organization working to disrupt poverty and empower inclusion for low and moderate-income youth and adults. Operation HOPE's focus is financial dignity and inclusion.

Ashley Dull

Why We Support Them:

Poverty rates are at alarming levels, and a scary number of Americans are a medical emergency away from homelessness. Operation HOPE is committed to ending that cycle by lifting up communities.

Jump$tart Coalition

Jump$tart Coalition

Many students leave school with the credentials to get a job, but do they know what to do with that first paycheck? This coalition is dedicated to giving young people the knowledge to better understand money.
