Our unbiased programming has a measurable impact on Oregon learners.
Youth and adults gain a deeper understanding of personal finance when completing Financial Beginnings lessons.

Financial Foundations participants are regularly evaluated to measure the knowledge they gain from taking part in the program. Oregon learners were asked a series of survey questions to gauge what they learned surrounding key personal finance topics.
