Find Your Safe Banking for Seniors Link

Looking for an audience in your community to give a financial education presentation to? ABA Foundation’s FinEdLink component is for you. This free online portal matches banks with schools, agencies, faith-based ministries, community centers, and other organizations that are interested 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 be a part of FinEdLink you need only check the opt-in box to agree to accept presentation requests when registering your participation in each of the Foundation’s financial education programs. You will find the opt-in option on the SBFS 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.
