What FoolProof offers:
Free, online lessons that teach young people the most important skill when it comes to decisions impacting their general welfare: To be smart, you must become a skeptic. Other programs do not teach that skill.
What are your obligations to FoolProof when you sign up?
There are none. You are completely in charge of your relationship with FoolProof.
In some cities, credit unions host a FoolProof login section on their websites. This means your students may eventually reach FoolProof by going to a credit union's home page.
Your use of FoolProof does not require you to do anything with a credit union.
Credit unions do not know which students are using FoolProof, and do not ever initiate contact with students.
Who developed the FoolProof curriculum?
FoolProof was developed by consumer advocates with the help of teachers and students. We are endorsed by the National Association of Consumer Advocates, the Consumer Federation of America, NYWISE, and the Care4YourFuture program.
The FoolProof Curriculum has been tested by tens of thousands of students in all fifty states. It is listed as a resource by the Jump$tart Coalition, and is approved for credit in all Texas schools.
Who pays for all of this?
FoolProof for High Schools is completely free—forever—for you and your school. Our funding is provided by the Walter Cronkite FoolProof Project, individual donations, and by a limited number of community-based credit unions.
The FoolProof curriculum and all of FoolProof's messages were developed solely by FoolProof. No businesses, including credit unions, had any input. We are advocates for honest financial literacy instruction, not marketers.
