Consumer Financial Education Fund
The Consumer Financial Education Fund supports projects that relate to consumer financial education, with an emphasis on issues related to large financial institutions, basic banking, access to financial services and retail banking accounts.
In our inaugural funding round, the Rose Foundation received more than 100 funding inquiries from organizations throughout the United States, out of which the Funding Board invited 19 applicants to submit full proposals.
This past March, the Funding Board completed its review of invited proposals. At every step of this process, the Board was tremendously impressed by the breadth and imagination of the work proposed, and gained valuable insight into the projects being performed by the financial education community. The Funding Board ultimately recommended funding to 13 organizations serving communities throughout the United States.
