FFP focuses much of our grantmaking and other efforts on areas where we believe we can have the greatest impact, including programs for military and veterans, programs for people with cancer, and activating volunteers across the country in partnership with our national strategic partners, the Financial Planning Association® (FPA®) and Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. (CFP Board).
Through our nationally-driven programs, we:
- Award grants to a range of community-based and national nonprofits who serve these key groups and whose efforts can be replicated and scaled;
- Support the development of specialized program models, training tools, and more that can be shared among our grantees, establishing a “learning loop” that enables us to refine and improve programs over time;
- Help forge connections between volunteer planners interested in serving these groups and the nonprofit programs we support;
- Maximize the impact that pro bono financial planning can have on the unique challenges faced by these groups.
