What Is FinEdLink?

Get Smart About Credit

Find Your Financial Education Link to High Schools/Young Adults

Looking for an audience in your community to give a financial education presentation to? ABA Foundation’s FinEdLink component can help you. This free online portal matches banks with schools, agencies, faith-based ministries, community centers, and other organizations that have expressed interest in having a banker present on age-appropriate personal finance topics. The ABA Foundation markets FinEdLink to non-banker audiences around the country to help you establish relationships in your community with those who have a vested interest in improving financial literacy.

To accept FinEdLink presentation requests, you need only check the opt-in box when registering your participation in each of the Foundation’s financial education programs. You will find the opt-in option on the GSAC enrollment form once you are logged into the ABA Shopping Cart. Opting-in then allows groups in your community to request a financial education presentation from your bank.
