What We Do

Financial Beginnings Nebraska is a non-profit organization founded in 2020 to help individuals to take control of their financial futures. Our powerful, volunteer-driven model has been developed and tested in close collaboration with professionals in finance and education. This unique partnership encourages professional volunteer instructors to engage community members directly, using personal and professional life experiences to inform and educate.

Our long-term vision is of a financially literate nation where individuals cease to see finances as a barrier, viewing them instead as a tool to realize dreams. We believe sound financial decisions are the result of education - especially early education. Today, Financial Beginnings works with hundreds of schools and community organizations to reach those most in need of accessible, unbiased financial instruction. Our programs promote self-sufficiency and resiliency, while expanding community access to / participation in financial services. By prioritizing the delivery of no-cost educational programming to youth and adults from lower-income and underserved communities, we increase equitable opportunities for economic advancement:

We teach individuals how to proactively improve their financial health.
We support un- and underbanked individuals in accessing and participating in financial services.
We create new, lasting networks and communities wherein the need for financial education is recognized, and all sectors work collaboratively towards increased financial literacy.
