The DoughMain Financial Literacy Foundation was created to teach children basic financial and economic literacy skills to promote life-long financial health. DoughMain Financial Literacy Foundation Inc. (DMFLF), a 501(c)(3) organization is working to close the financial literacy gap in our country and build stronger, financially literate communities — one student, one classroom, one school at a time. DoughMain Financial Literacy Foundation created and provides an eight-unit curriculum which includes lessons, activities, and highest quality to schools and teachers at no cost. We have developed a student-centered financial literacy curriculum that is standards-based and provides 60 hours of financial literacy education for high school students. We are presently engaging schools and educators within central New Jersey communities and would appreciate your support in expanding our financial literacy education program for teens and advance our vision of “A Financially FIT America.” The Foundation works closely with educators, opinion makers, business leaders and families to dramatically improve financial literacy and better prepare the next generation for a lifetime of better financial decisions.
