For 30 years, the ICI Education Foundation has pursued its mission to advance investor education by developing, delivering, and promoting investor education to a variety of audiences—from seniors, to African Americans, middle school students, high schoolers, retirement savers, the Hispanic community, and those new to the workforce.

Two of the foundation’s current partnerships reflect its history of reaching out to a range of audiences. With Junior Achievement, ICIEF brings investor education to 35,000 middle school students each year. And with the Robert Toigo Foundation, ICIEF supports its mission to foster the career advancement of underrepresented talent in the financial services industry.

Investing has changed significantly in the past 30 years, but the need for investor education has remained. As we kick off our celebration of the foundation’s anniversary in October, we will be sharing tips for successful investing—one tip for each of the foundation’s 30 years—on our social media accounts over the coming weeks.
