National Endowment for Financial Education: Exciting Updates from NEFE

September 1, 2020

The National Endowment for Financial Education® (NEFE®) is redefining financial education. We debuted our first offering four decades ago to meet demand at that time for accessible, noncommercial and high-quality programming. We are extremely proud of our legacy. Yet as the financial education space evolves, we recognize the importance of adapting to best benefit our field.

We are excited to continue advancing the financial well-being movement in new and innovative ways with a focus on research that documents the benefits of financial education, providing rigorous evaluation of resources and informing providers about the ecosystem that impacts financial well-being beyond education. In recognition of our service to the field and continued evolution, our updated mission and vision statements reflect how we will incite collective growth, impact and change to improve the effectiveness of our efforts.


NEFE champions effective financial education. We are the independent, centralizing voice providing leadership, research and collaboration to advance financial well-being.


NEFE envisions a nation where everyone has the knowledge, confidence and opportunity to live their best financial life. 

As part of our shift and updated approach, we are thrilled to introduce our new brand, which reflects our ongoing commitment to the field of improving financial well-being.

We value our partnerships and will continue to build strategic relationships with those who share the ambition of increasing the financial well-being of all Americans. We seek thoughtful collaboration that focuses on addressing the financial education needs of the underserved, teachers, youth, emerging households and those facing special circumstances.

We will continue to operate with a focus on diversity, equity and inclusion. We are making a greater commitment to evolve by investing in new communities, particularly among organizations who support diverse and underserved populations. This spirit of unity and collaboration is necessary as we work together toward real solutions. 

To round out our new look we have a new location. Please note that NEFE has moved and is now located at: 1550 Market Street, Suite 475, Denver, Colorado 80202. Our telephone number remains the same: 303-741-6333.

Please update your records to reflect our new contact information and direct future mailing  correspondence to the address noted above.
