Building financial confidence for today’s generation

Intuit is on a mission to help 50 million students become financially literate, capable, and confident by 2030. Read more on how we’re working toward building the first financially savvy generation.

Most students today will graduate without knowing how to save, budget, or manage credit, just as they are about to start making serious financial decisions that’ll impact their future. In fact, a new survey published today found that 85% of US high school students say that they are interested in learning about financial topics in school.

For 40 years, we’ve been focused on helping our customers achieve financial confidence. We’ve leveraged that experience and our technology to help students become the first financially savvy generation.

“Without personal finance knowledge, students struggle to make informed financial decisions, jeopardizing their long-term financial success after graduating,” said Dave Zasada, vice president of Education and Corporate Responsibility at Intuit. “We know that financial education works. Our survey shows that 95% of students who receive financial curriculum at school find it helpful. As an organization that has been powering prosperity globally for 40 years, Intuit recognizes our unique opportunity and set a goal to help 50 million students become more financially literate, capable, and confident by 2030.”

Intuit is supporting the call for financial education by providing students and teachers with Intuit for Education curriculum, launching a new Hour of Finance challenge, sharing insights on the state of financial education, and more.
