Who is FPP? What is its purpose?
The Mission of FPP is to Elevate Financial Capability for All.
What does FPP strive to deliver?
FPP, and its legacy name of Florida Prosperity Partnership, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit coalition of 4000+ partners and members in and beyond Florida who primarily serve low- and moderate-income individuals and households.
The coalition is comprised of Florida-based, domestic and international organizations and practitioners representing non-profits, financial institutions, academia, government agencies, for-profit enterprises and more, all committed to generating a collective impact.
Through coalition engagement, FPP’s Financial Capability practitioners build knowledge, skill and understanding to elevate people and communities from Financial Crisis to Stability, Security, Well-Being and Prosperity.

The Partner—FPP actively engages with coalition partners, giving them a bigger, more influential voice and increasing their capacity to impact their local communities so they may reach people where they Live, Learn, Work, Bank, Start Businesses, Get Healthy, Receive Social Services, Worship and Are Entertained.
What is the Financial Capability Continuum?
Some experience disruption along their financial pathway—unemployment, health issues, a host of personal and environmental challenges—that lead to Crisis mode.
Moving from financial Crisis to Stability includes a balance between assets, income and expenses. Security is a state of well-being achieved when financial worries begin to subside and savings for emergencies or the future begin to accumulate.
Financial Well-Being and Prosperity can also be part of a financial “story” as individuals, households and communities thrive and entertain their dreams and desires.
This model is known as The Financial Capability Continuum.
