The Harris Foundation partners with financial institutions such as Capital One Bank and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas - Houston Branch to launch education programs aimed at teaching students about sound financial principles and entrepreneurship. The need for this type of programming which we call “Financial IQ” is great: The Charles Schwab 2011 Teen and Money Report showed that only one in three teens knows how to balance a checkbook and manage a credit card. Yet, 86 percent of students want to learn about money management in class before making mistakes in the real world.To be successful in any field, one must be able to manage his or her money properly and make sound investments that yield the largest benefits.
If your organization is interested in partnering with The Harris Foundation on this type of initiative, please contact us:
