CompareCards is dedicated to preparing our youth for a bright future by educating them in finance and economics. We feel it is vitally important to teach financial education & literacy at a young age, so children can begin building good financial habits and continue to make informed financial choices as adults.
CompareCards’ Financially Literate Youth (FLY) program is funding up to $20,000 for the upcoming school year to go towards financial education. A recent report by the Department of the Treasury found that financial education in schools, even in small amounts, does increase financial knowledge and capability, even one year after program implementation. By providing this opportunity for schools to win one of four school grants, we hope to see positive results from the implementation of a financial education program in our school systems.
Any public, private, or charter school in the United States applying for a FLY grant must meet the following criteria:
