Why should I invite a banker to make a presentation?

Bankers have unique knowledge, as well as access to tools and resources that can help audiences develop the skills necessary to make better-informed and secure decisions when it comes to their finances.

Do all banks participate in ABA Foundation's programs?

Every year, banks in all fifty states and U.S. territories register to participate in the ABA Foundation’s financial education programs. Each program’s participating banks list is available online, including notation of those banks accepting FinEdLink Presentation Requests.
