About the
   ICI Education Foundation

The ICI Education Foundation (ICIEF) is a non-profit organization formed in 1989 to advance the financial well-being of individuals, with a particular focus on underrepresented communities, by strategically partnering with organizations and participating in initiatives that increase financial literacy and promote the importance of saving and investing.

Core objectives are:

  • Advance the financial well-being of individuals.
  • Increase financial literacy.
  • Promote the importance of saving and investing.

ICIEF is the educational affiliate of the Investment Company Institute, the leading association representing regulated investment funds.

“Financial literacy is a critical factor in creating financial wellness. You need knowledge to make the best financial decisions, particularly when it comes to saving and investing for your future. And yet, many of us have only minimal education—if any—in this area. At ICIEF, we are partnering with great organizations that are focused on closing the financial education gaps especially for women and people from underrepresented communities.”
