The NAPFA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is committed to turning Americans into confident financial decision makers.

The Foundation directly supports NAPFA’s strategic driver, advocacy, by helping to drive the initiative of increasing accessibility of Fee-Only financial planning resources and services to a broader population.

使命: Transforming lives by expanding access to Fee-Only financial planning

愿景: Changing lives through pro-bono financial advice.

The NAPFA Foundation fulfills its Mission with the following programs:

  • Building 首页s for Heroes — This is the exclusive CFP® partner advising disabled veterans. This program has been directly supported through generous grants from the Foundation for Financial Planning (FFP) since 2016.
  • Advisers Give Back— The Foundation partners with Advisers Give Back by connecting consumers with a pro bono NAPFA advisor.
  • College Affordability Project — This project helps families understand the costs of college and connecting families with tools to save money on the cost of college. This program is directly supported through generous grants from the Foundation for Financial Planning (FFP).

The NAPFA Foundation is celebrating 20 years in 2024!

Giving back through the NAPFA Foundation is an excellent way to make a difference. Consider volunteering your financial planning expertise or making a donation to support the Foundation's programs. All contributions are tax-deductible and spent on operations and programming.

As a financial planner, your impact of offering pro-bono advice to people who otherwise would not have access to is immeasurable.
