Welcome to the Council on Financial Education Accreditation
An organization accredited by the Council on Financial Education Accreditation has demonstrated sound business practices, the use of quality educational materials and a commitment to continuous quality improvement.
Financial literacy has become a necessary life skill.
In this era of complex financial products, increasing college costs and reliance on personal retirement planning, financial literacy has become a critical life skill. Individuals, families, government organizations and service providers make investments of time and resources in financial education programs every day with the expectation that they will provide valuable, actionable knowledge to participants.
Not all financial education programs are created equal.
Every time a person or organization spends hard-earned money on an ineffective program, the entire field suffers. Even programs that are meticulous about maintaining quality, reviewing their results and making relevant improvements are cast into doubt when unscrupulous or poorly managed programs fail to provide valuable content.
Distinguish your financial education program. Become accredited. The Council on Financial Education Accreditation (“CFEA”) provides a consistent set of standards that give financial education organizations a uniform framework to evaluate and continuously improve the quality and effectiveness of their financial literacy efforts. This enables financial education organizations to distinguish themselves from the field. Learn how your organization can become accredited now!
