What People Are Saying

"We used the ABA Foundation’s FinEdLink platform to connect with a local bank to partner with us. A passionate banker from Croghan Colonial Bank came out and shared a comprehensive Safe Banking for Seniors presentation on how older Americans can combat elder fraud. It was so helpful and informative, we received requests to schedule many more presentations throughout our community to spread the word."

Joseph L. From OH

"Mr. Panetta, from Dime Community Bank, was great. He and I decided to host a bilingual informative presentation on ways to identify and prevent fraud. Thanking you again for connecting me to Mr. Panetta."

Denise R. from NY

"I wanted to let you know how much we at McLean Community Village Association and the older adult community of McLean appreciated the time and effort the bank took to bring us a comprehensive education on choosing a financial caregiver."

Caroline W. from VA

"We were able to have Mr. John Jordan do a wonderful presentation. He responded promptly when I asked for a presenter. I serve 102 extremely low income seniors, and they even shared spam calls and scam calls with Mr. Jordan; it was a very timely presentation, and I appreciate the opportunity to have had this resource! Thank you ABA Foundation for the work you are doing to help protect and educate vulnerable populations."

Lisa N. from TN

Carol R. from TN

"We hosted two events, one at each of the two senior properties I manage. The banker was awesome and she did a great job!"
