Who We Are
AFE is a nationwide 501(c)(3) non-profit, speaker’s bureau comprised of financial professionals in dozens of fields including: investing, estate planning, accounting, tax, real estate, law, and more. Our members have a passion for education and have one common goal: empowering individuals and communities with the knowledge they need to take control of their own financial well-being.
We strongly believe that by providing free financial education to the public we can bring forth an economic awareness in individuals. We can assist them in avoiding financial pitfalls and provide enough sound advice to aid them in making educated financial decisions not only for themselves, but for their families.
Our members generously donate their time to share their knowledge, and to empower your corporation or organization’s employees to take control of their individual financial futures.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has also chosen AFE as a member of their 2018 “Your Money Your Goals” cohort. The CFPB is a federal government agency that governs the financial sectors of the U.S. as well as helps promote financial education for all individuals in the country.
Ours is a money-centric society, but reality is such that many of us grew up without the fundamental skills needed to prosper into retirement and beyond.
We may have taken economics, math, and maybe even a course or two in finance, but few of us have been trained in critical skills like money management, budgeting, estate planning, retirement planning, and surviving a recession. This combined with the ongoing barrage of media messages insisting everyone needs a newer car, a bigger house and designer dog food to, “keep up with the Joneses” means many Americans are facing financial ruin!
But who has the energy to pursue an economic education when simply staying afloat is all-consuming? This is where we come in. Our workshops give your employees the opportunity to strengthen their skills and offer them valuable, vital information at no cost to them or your company.
