Our vision is to reverse the trend of athletes making fatal financial decisions by cultivating financial literacy as a life skill for student-athletes, active and retired professionals and their families

How will you be part of the solution?

Councils comprise our core operating system – they are the means by which we actualize our vision. Look at the councils and their objectives below to decide where you fit in.
Reach and engage our members and audience with a virtual presence on our website, on our social media platforms, or live at our annual conference.

If you want to be part of the solution but don’t have the time or energy to be an active participant in the campaign, make a donation to help underwrite the cost of the Financial Literacy campaign.
Work sessions and educational seminars for council members; expert speakers and special presentations for student and professional athletes and their friends and family members; exclusive coverage for our journalist partners.
