Powering Prosperity in the classroom

Around the world, there’s a growing need for personal finance education. Intuit believes every student should have the opportunity to prosper, regardless of zip code.


Our partnership with the Suh Family Foundations helps us scale our personal finance programming across Intuit’s Prosperity Hub School Districts. Our financial basics curriculum is designed to empower and prepare students for their financial future as they build smarter money habits around wealth-building, personal finances, money management, and more.


We aim to instill confidence for teachers who are tasked with teaching core finance topics, and help build confidence for students as they take this financial education into the real world upon graduation.

Bridging the equity wealth gap

1 in 5 students

were guaranteed to take a personal finance course in order to graduate in public U.S. high schools during the 2020-2021 school year.

1 in 14 students

This number drops dramatically in schools with 75%+ Black and Brown students.

1 in 13 students

A clear gap exists within schools where 75%+ of students are eligible for Free-and-Reduced Lunch.

Bridging the financial literacy gap

22.7%

of U.S. high school students are guaranteed to take a standalone Personal Finance course of at least one semester* prior to graduation in 2022.

48.2%

of U.S. high school students have access to a standalone Personal Finance course of at least one semester* either as an elective or as one option to fulfill a graduation requirement (cluster) in 2022.

17

U.S. States now guarantee, or have committed to guaranteeing, all high school students will take a standalone Personal Finance course of at least one semester prior to graduation. Eight of the 17 states have fully implemented their guarantees statewide while nine of the 17 are currently in the beginning stages of working with schools and districts to execute their new guarantees.

39.7%

of all U.S. high school students will be required to take a personal finance course of at least one semester once all 17 states have fully implemented their guarantees statewide.

1 / 2

Of all 50 states and Washington D.C.

1 in 4 students

(22.7%) in the U.S. has guaranteed access to Personal Finances courses.

1 in 20 students

in schools with >75% Black and Brown student population were guaranteed access to Personal Finance education.

1 in 20 students

in schools with >75% Free and Reduced Lunch student population were guaranteed access to Personal Finance education.

This inequitable distribution of personal finance education will likely widen the existing racial and socioeconomic gaps in our communities. Intuit is on a mission to bridge this gap and provide access to quality personal finance education for all students*.
