Students will get access to the Goalsetter app, which includes hundreds of hours of video mapped to national financial standards.

One-on-one Financial Consultations

Faculty and staff can speak to financial professionals to help them manage financial issues, identify immediate action steps, and make referrals to other services at no cost.

Most initiatives focus on the students and unintentionally overlook the faculty/staff and parents/caretakers.

“We can only give students the foundation they need for future financial success if educators and staff feel more secure in their own financial beliefs, knowledge, habits and goals. And we must be equally vigilant about providing the adults in their households with the same level of support.”

FFP Founder/IMC Financial Consulting CEO

We have both a professional and moral responsibility to ensure the academic and financial success of our students. Their participation in our local, national and global economy is critical to the future of our community and our country, and it is our responsibility to cement their financial foundation as a cornerstone of their financial well-being.”
