The National Financial Educators Council is dedicated to creating a world where people are informed to make qualified financial decisions that improve their lives, the lives of their loved ones, and the lives of people they reach around the globe. The organization focuses on improving the financial capabilities of individuals while raising awareness for the financial literacy movement.
The NFEC is an independent, for-profit financial literacy council with a social enterprise business model.This structure gives us the freedom to deliver an unbiased financial education and assist organizations in need of support. Social responsibility, conscious capitalism, and free enterprise are the fundamental principles underpinning our teachings and overall business model.
The NFEC’s commitment to gaining deeper understanding of personal finance topics helps the industry obtain empirical data, illuminates best practices, and shares professional opinions about the subject. Using surveys, research, crowdsourcing, and think tanks, the NFEC has developed the Framework for Teaching Personal Finance.
The NFEC operates an active crowdsourcing model to leverage the knowledge possessed by other industry experts. We collaborate with those individuals who have experience in the education, finance, and personal money management fields to refine, fine-tune, and perfect the Framework.
The NFEC prides itself on being in a constant state of beta. Our material is improved and modified as new information becomes available or broader changes take place that warrant reiteration of the material. We value the comments, feedback, and opinions of those who review our publications.
