Financial Education Outreach* is a community-focused nonprofit organization with a mission to address financial literacy gaps while providing access to the tools and resources necessary to build economic security.
Since 2011, Financial Education Outreach has focused its efforts on closing the economic security and financial literacy service gaps by educating our community members about basic money matters. We facilitate public-private partnerships that engage professionals, retirees, and persons from the financial industry in meaningful volunteer experiences that improve the financial capability of individuals least likely to have access to such programs. FEO initiatives focus on budgeting, saving, the rewards of delayed gratification, and other aspects of financial health.
