The Networks We Strengthen

The FINRA Foundation empowers its partners to reach people where they live, work and learn. It’s about building capacity and nurturing supportive networks that stand ready and well equipped to guide Americans through life’s financial decisions and challenges.

Empowering Fraud Fighters

From law enforcement to consumer advocates and skillful volunteers, the FINRA Foundation and its partners have trained thousands to detect, prevent and respond to financial fraud. The training is turn-key and grounded in research. It puts the right tools in the hands of those in a position to protect consumers and take appropriate action when fraud does occur. The FINRA Foundation’s financial fraud fighting network is national and growing ever larger.
