BANC Foundation financial literacy
Knowledge is the most powerful tool for advancing financial well-being.
Every financial decision, large or small, makes a difference over time. Knowing what the options are and understanding the impact of each is the key to financial well-being.
We provide educational tools and resources to people of all ages,
We partner with those organizations to help teach the fundamentals to children and help adults understand the more complex concepts of financial management and wealth building.
We do it because we’re about financial empowerment. And where money is concerned, knowledge is power.
We’re actively engaged with partners who share our goal of advancing financial literacy in our communities.

“It’s a sad reality for many children that their entire future could be affected by the ZIP code where they grew up. All students at Crete Academy have the opportunity to succeed and thrive, despite their circumstances. One day, the cycle of poverty will end, and these students who were once homeless or living in poverty will be leaders of the world. That’s why we begin talking to our students about the benefits of a college degree when they’re in kindergarten, and we designed a program to get them there.”
